Students and teachers at Churchill were thrilled to get involved with a Shakespearean Festival last Tuesday, May 1st to spread their love for Shakespearean literature and the time period overall.
One teacher who helped create the whole meet was history teacher Stephanie Carrier, who thought her favorite part of the festival were the guys who really got themselves involved with roleplaying within the time period.
“You usually see a lot of girls get into the costumes during these kind of festivals,” said Carrier.” So its impressive to see the guys actually get dressed up and into it.”
Although turn out was spectacular, many students had no idea a festival was even taking place during the lunches.
“I wish I was able to hear more about it before it actually started,” freshman Katherine Williams stated. “I would’ve loved to get more involved if I saw more about it around the school.”
Even so, many students want to see if anything similar would come up soon. It being this year or the next.
“If anything like this festival were to happen again I’d definitely do it,” freshman Emily Barrozo said. “It looks fun and I want to see what they’ll do next.”
