Julius Caesar Comes to New Hope
The players of Classical Repertory Company (CRC), were back again this year, this time for Julius Caesar. They put on two workshops -- middle schoolers in the morning and high schoolers in the afternoon. They had the kids up and moving around, stomping around to the beat of iambic pentameter, pondering Shakespearian diction and rhetorical devices, and finally producing their own persuasive speeches. In two weeks, we will head down to Watertown to see them perform the play and have a talk-back session with our students.
We strongly recommend partnering with this great program. The actors who come and share their joy of encountering Shakespeare are truly remarkable, and our students leave feeling a bit more connected to the Bard's work. We will book CRC for next year!
