Our Second Graders wowed their audience yesterday afternoon in the Amphitheater with their presentation of Shakespeare’s classic comedy. With an abbreviated scrip interspersed with current observations, the action was fast-paced. Confidence and individual personalities were obvious as these young thespians demanded, swooned, rebuffed, slept, and even (very briefly) left mortality in this delightful presentation! One child’s head even temporarily morphed into a donkey’s! But after all, it was just a dream.
“It’s amazing,” remarked one of the Second Grader’s grandmothers, “that these young children can learn all these lines so well. They were obviously enjoying themselves. And with this experience, they should have no trouble speaking in front of large groups in the future.”
Having mastered the characters of Hermia, Lysander, Puck, Titania, Bottom, and many more, these Second Graders are well prepared for future roles in Peninsula Heritage productions and beyond.
Thanks go to Mrs. Esturain for her love of Shakespeare in inaugurating this wonderful event, and to Miss Mervette and Miss Carolina for their assistance in working with the Second Graders. Gratitude is also extended to Mr. Charley Miller for the perfectly timed lullaby music in the sleep scenes, for the background music, and for the sound system!
Kudos to all for an event charmingly presented!
