The Play's The Thing - Millhopper Montessori Performs Shakespeare
GAINESVILLE -"The play's the thing" and for some Millhopper Montessori students they made Shakespeare their own thing on stage today.
The school performed their sixth Shakespeare Festival at the Thomas Center in Gainesville.
They took what they learned in their english class about A Midsummer Night's Dream and adapted it to modern times.
But english teacher Susan Hansen says in some parts they still stayed true to Shakespeare's vision because they enjoy learning about it.
Susan Hansen, english teacher: "they didn't have to include the original Shakespearean in their rewritten speeches but they did...they have characters who only speak the original Shakespearean."
They also performed parts of Romeo and Juliet and Hamlet.
