Shakespeare Dress Up
In high school classes sometimes the teacher adds a little change to the typical bookwork day in the classroom. Recently, English 1 classes had a visitor from the St. Louis Acting Company, Ms. Kathy Doerr. She brought with her props and costumes for the students
to wear and reenacted plays written by the famous Shakespeare. Romeo and Juliet was the play of the day, as Doerr explained the different acts and what they meant. The highlight was actually dressing as the characters and learning acting tips. Mrs. Krussel is the teacher for English I classes.
