A Night of Shakespeare

Grace is in the center in the blue

Last night was the long awaited performance of Shakespeare with Creative Christian Cooperative. We always seem to sweat it till the very last minute with getting it all together and the kids always come through with flying colors. I guess most drama productions are like that. We had so many students participating that we had to perform three Shakespeare spoofs (Hamlet, Macbeth, and Romeo and Juliet). All were very funny and well received.

I think the guys had just as much fun with this as the girls. After the spoofs we had an intermission then returned to perform Twelfth Night (Grace played the fair Olivia). Every time we have a performance different students shine. Yes, we have students that you can always count on to give 100 percent and are wonderful to watch. I am talking about those students that shine through with a particular part and steal the show. Truly every performance it is a different student. We are so blessed to have so many talented students that enjoy performing and enjoy each others company. Many of these drama students have been together for 4 or 5 years.

In January the high school students will get to perform a musical (Fiddler on the Roof)which is usually their favorite type of play. Surprisingly, Grace decided to take a break next semester and take a stage makeup class. I think all the Shakespearean lines really gave her a run for her money and she just wants to relax this next semester.
