Our 6th graders performed an amazing abbreviated version of one of Shakespeare’s masterpieces, Macbeth. While studying the play, their conversations about the characters’ actions, moral challenges and emotions were insightful. The students created a 17-minute version that can be seen below.
The students’ performances were taped here on campus. It’s fun to see how our Mitchell Mansion makes such a noble backdrop for the play, as well as the Ginkgo House with its arched doorway and stone steps. The whole show is stylized to look like line drawings in black and white of the characters. It’s really quite remarkable.
