Shakespeare Festival for Elementary Students

On Saturday, April 14, five HISD Elementary Schools (Crespo, Patterson, Poe, Herod, and Sinclair) each sent a company of theatre students to perform in HISD’s first Shakespeare Festival for Elementary students at Tanglewood Middle School. Each school performed an adaptation of a play by William Shakespeare. Each adapted script was written by Brendan Kelso (https://playingwithplays.com/).  Mr. Kelso arranged the performance rights and promoted the event on his blog.  HISD media worked with the Fine Arts Department to create a press release, and HISD media sent a camera and reporter to cover the event.
