Last night I had the opportunity to attend “An Evening with Shakespeare” put on by Paula Zwicke’s AP English class in the high school library. The students had displays and explained and answered questions regarding various aspects of life in medieval times. Following that, the students acted several scenes from Shakespeare’s plays Hamlet and The Merchant of Venice. It was a much more interesting way to be introduced to the works of Shakespeare than I remember from my high school days and the introduction to life in medieval times with each student becoming knowledgeable about specific areas was an excellent way to give the students, and we, who were fortunate enough to hear it, insight into life at and before the time of Shakespeare. Kudos to Mrs. Zwicke and the students for an entertaining and educational evening!
