Forty-five advanced English students attended a live performance of Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival (ASF) last week. The ASF website provides the following description of the 90-minute play, “Shakespeare’s final play is a story of adventure, magic, music, and forgiveness. Prospero has been exiled on an island with her daughter for more than a decade when she conjures a storm that crashes her enemies on the island in a violent shipwreck. What follows is a story that asks, ‘How do we forgive and move on after we have been harmed?’ Rick Dildine directs, and ASF alumnus Greta Lambert stars as Prospero.” The play was part of the students’ study of Shakespeare. Ninth grade students read “Romeo and Juliet,” and eleventh grade students read “Othello” before being treated to a live performance of a Shakespeare play. Thank you to Mrs. Laureli Lee for organizing the educational and cultural event for our students, as well as chaperones Mrs. Breezy Johnson, Mrs. Mary White and Mr. Scott White.
