Laughter filled the BASIS Independent McLean Theatre during three rousing performances of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. For months, 22 students in grades 6 through 9 rehearsed after school to learn their lines, perfect their blocking, and nail their comedic timing. The students studied iambic pentameter, analyzed their character's arc, and worked on character motivations to perfect their craft.
Enjoy photos from the performance below.
The play was directed by Drama Subject Expert Teacher Ms. Nickles. Set and lighting design was created by music SET Mr. Junsay. Grade 6-9 drama classes helped Mr. Junsay with the set.
We’re proud of all our thespians! Great work!
Earlier this year, our kindergarten through grade 5 students took a packed theatre back in time in their TimeWarp performance. Read more about it here.
