Our scholars at American Heritage Academy love to read and perform Shakespeare. After the upper grammar finish their first week of school, they journey up to Cedar City to attend the Shakespearian Festival.
We have had some amazing trips to Cedar City in the past few years. This year we will be seeing Romeo and Juliet, the classic tragic love story, told in the beautiful language of the bard, William Shakespeare. In the past, we were furtunate to be able to see shows like The Merchant of Venice and Comedy of Errors…professionally performed and produced!!
It isn’t just the plays that draw us to southern Utah, though (WHAT?, did the theatre teacher really just say that?). Before we ever make it to the University, the scholars are taken on a journey where they learn teamwork, trust, respect, and fun. It is a challenging and growing experience for everyone. A day they will NEVER forget!!
And this trip is just a catalyst into the opportunity to perform a Shakespeare play at the end of the school year. The scholars learn the depth of the writer, the lyrical rhythm of the script, and the importance of each character, scene, and phrase.
September 2nd won’t be here soon enough!!
“…parting is such sweet sorrow…”
I can’t wait until my kids are old enough to do this!
