Audiences got a peek at the incredible theatrical talent in APS by checking out two separate productions at the Shakespeare Tavern the previous weekend. Students from the Therrell Educational Complex performed A Midsummer Night’s Dream, while students from The New Schools at Carver’s School of Technology performed Macbeth. The professional actors at The Shakespeare Tavern provided an eight-week residency at Carver. This residency was facilitated through the Extended Day Afterschool Program. The main focus was to expose high school students to the theatre through the work of Shakespeare. The production presented to the students this year was the tragedy of Macbeth. The experience was very rewarding and uplifting for all students and staff involved.
At the end of the eight weeks, the students at the School of Technology performed the play at school assembly for their peers along with on the professional stage at the Shakespeare Tavern. Check out this amazing photo gallery from both productions at the Shakespeare Tavern.
