This year’s Summer Shakespeare show at American Leadership Academy will be Richard III.
The shows will be at ALA July 8-10 at 2 and 7 p.m. Tickets are sold at the door and are $5 per person or $25 for a family pass.
Every summer, the ALA drama teacher (Sandy Millet) and her students dedicate two solid weeks of their vacation to studying Shakespeare. During these two weeks the cast spends time learning about Shakespeare’s life, preparing for Shakespeare Competition in the fall, and producing a 90-minute version of a Shakespeare play.
One of the coolest things about performing Shakespeare is the opportunity to take the stories and characters that the Bard created and set them in a different time period. The setting for Richard III will be a 1920’s Jazz club.
So, if you love classic jazz music, sensational villains, or film noir detective stories, come enjoy this mobster version of Richard III! (Serve Daily submission.)
