5th Grade Production of A Midsummer Night's Dream Takes New Format during COVID

"This year," says Middle School Drama teacher Lydia Horan, "TFS 5th graders created digital versions of scenes from Shakespeare's play, A Midsummer Night's Dream. The students chose the settings, themes and characters they wanted to play in the various scenes. They rehearsed in class and recorded themselves at home using their Chromebook cameras. Some scenes are repeated with different themes and different actors playing the roles. The Cast:  Henry Adams, Journey Boston, Nate Brown, Claire Dodson, Alexander Edwards, Miles Gosse, Henry Lawrence, Maude Leback, Tamittica Paulovich, Brendan Shiraishi, Vivi Tuerk, and Finn Walden. Congratulations to the 5th grade for their persistence, creativity, self-motivation and hard work in performing Shakespeare remotely, and using technology to bring scenes and characters from Midsummer to life!"
