The Waldorf School of Garden City gives an opportunity to all sophomore students to participate in the annual play. The Class of 2017 will perform Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare; the play will be set in a world where the old tradition will be held in a modern fashion. This play will be performed in the school auditorium on January 29th at 7:30 pm and the 31st of January at 7:30 pm. Donations are much encouraged and appreciated.
Mrs. Deirdre Burns Somers, directing her 25th play here at the school, commented, “The sophomores are working collaboratively and cooperatively, sharing the workload out of their generous and giving spirits. Their concerted effort is very evident on stage.”
The renowned Renaissance playwright, William Shakespeare (April 26, 1564 –April 24, 1616) became the master of his time and expanded the English vocabulary by adding up to 400 words to it. Romeo and Juliet is a classic love story based on feuding families who cannot forsake their disputes and cause their beloved children to end their lives in a tragic way. This play will be featured in the round, providing a more intimate connection to the play and its characters.
Performing this play has helped the class develop good team building skills, which will provide students with knowledge and experience for future activities.
