NAMS Theatre Class Celebrated Shakespeare's Birthday
April 23rd marked Shakespeare’s 359th Birthday.  It also marked the day that he died. Shakespeare is an incredibly well-known playwright famous for Romeo and Juliet. Matthew Darling’s Theatre I class at New Albany Middle School has been studying the history of drama.   They just completed a section of study on Elizabethan and Shakespearean Theatre.  Students had the opportunity to take their own pictures using a photobooth and attempted to sign Shakespeare’s signature
Students studied how Shakespeare is famous for “throwing tomatoes at a bad actor” and even got to reenact it.  Students answered questions about Shakespeare’s life and work and the students who got correct answers got to throw a ball of paper at Mr. Darling simulating the experience at Shakespeare’s Globe.
Students enjoyed celebrating one of the most famous and influential figures in the history of theatre.
