    Thanks to Nutrien and the Dakota Dunes Community Foundation, #shakespearesasklive is back at it! This year, I'll be working with Elizabeth Nepjuk, and we're both so excited! We've prepared 6 plays for schools to choose from: Hamlet, Macbeth, Romeo & Juliet, A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Merry Wives of Windsor, and a PG version of Titus Andronicus. How it works is we start with a brief intro to Shakespeare and then one of us narrates a synopsis of the play, while the students, who have been assigned roles, act it out with us telling them where to go and what to do, and at times what to say. While this is all going on, the other one of us plays one of the characters and performs a monologue. Today, at Delisle Elementary, I was reminded, and Liz was surprised to find out, how much energy goes into these workshops. But it is so worth it! The students were just beaming. Thank you Mr. Morris and the staff and students at Delisle Elementary - it was a pleasure to start this year's round of workshops with you!
