PJHS Shakespeare Team Competes in Cedar City

David Aintablian

Students at PJHS were able to form a Shakespeare team and compete in the annual Shakespeare competition in Cedar City last week. While there, they went to workshops held by professional Shakespearean actors as well as attend SUU’s performance of “Twelfth Night."

The Shakespeare team was critiqued on their acting after having professionals model high level Shakespeare interpretation. They received specific advice and tools to develop acting and interpretation skills. It was a wonderful experience for students as they were exposed to a culture that greatly values challenging literature.
