The annual monthlong residency with Shakespeare & Co. started last Tuesday. This year’s production is “Henry V” and the performances will be at Bay Street Theatre on Thursday, January 26, at 1 and 6 p.m.
In order to become more familiar with the characters and the story the student actors performed a distilled version of the play on Tuesday and Wednesday while they enjoyed participating in a variety of acting exercises. On Thursday the whole school gathered for our annual “Shakespeare Scramble” where the children created a visual representation to accompany a line of text from the play and then put the artwork and lines in the order of the story.
On Friday students received their roles.
