I did not have a sitter for Emma, so she joined the class today. Let me tell you, she really thought she was a part of the class. When Alex was reading some lines from Twelfth Night (he was playing the part of Malvolio) she runs in the house and gets a copy of Hamlet and does her own "reading". It was pretty funny!
So now we move on to Hamlet. Away from the Comedy, into the Tragedy. I can't wait to see what the kids can do with this one! On tap, I have 6 movie versions we're going to watch selected scenes from. Don't tell them, but my favorite is Kenneth Branagh! I want them to come up with their own favorite. We will be going back to the park to see Woodward Shakespeare Festival's production of Hamlet on stage. If it's anything like Twelfth Night, I have a feeling the kids' will choose the stage over the films.
Be not afraid of greatness: some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them." Twelfth Night, Act II, Scene V
