On Wednesday, February 22nd, Middle & Lower School students got a special surprise performance during morning ceremony. Volunteers from the cast of the upcoming Shakespeare Festival performance The Taming of the Shrew performed a “flash mob” of the balcony scene from Romeo & Juliet in honor of Valentine’s Day. The students performed the parts of Romeo and Juliet in chorus, answering each other in the iconic scene. Students participated as part of a contest sponsored by the Folgers Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C. It was a surprise to all not involved in the play, and what a welcome one it was!
The Upper School got in on the Shakespeare celebrations as well, as Mr. Flanagan’s World Literature course took advantage of the warm weather and put on their own version of “Shakespeare in the Park,” simulating the traditional theatre-in-the-round of Shakespeare’s time outside in the Academy’s Ga-ga pit. Students performed a scene from Romeo & Juliet as well, getting hands-on experience with Shakespeare’s iconic love story.
Lacordaire’s annual Shakespeare Festival, featuring the 7th & 8th grade performance of The Taming of the Shrew will occur on Tuesday, May 8th. We hope to see you there!
