Shakespeare was never like this!

On Thursday of last week, the ninth-grade Honors English students performed a mock trial to determine the guilt of Tybalt in the death of Mercutio.

These same students studied, interpreted and performed the next day some of the key scenes from Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Teacher Maria Lario directed the students to stay true to the story while creatively intrepreting the scene. The students were allowed to alter time period and setting. The performances were part of Make-it-Shakespeare day - a culminating celebration of the students' study of the influential writer.
