The high school’s much awaited excursion to see William Shakespeare’s play “Romeo and Juliet” live at the Alliance Francaise Theater did not disappoint. For an hour and forty-five minutes students were immersed in the lives and loves of a young couple from Verona and their feuding families. Due to background work over the past few weeks the students’ knowledge of this classic was solid, enabling them to follow the story’s plot easily and thus adding to their enjoyment. The cast put on a fantastic production and even allocated time at the end of the performance for students to ask any burning questions. On the way back to school we made a quick pit-stop for a bite to eat to appease some very grumbling stomachs! The teachers agreed that our students’ behavior was exemplary on this trip!
