Shakespeare Is Invading the AP Literature Class
Throughout this past week, we have been reading Hamlet in class, portraying different characters and discussing the meanings behind Shakespeare’s words. While we had only made it through about Act I, we still decided to go and watch the performance anyways. The performance we watched wasn’t done live, but in fact being streamed to the theater in Damariscotta. A fellow student, Madison Stahle thinks “The play was engaging in how it was an accurate depiction of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, with a modern twist.” Despite how long the production was, a little over three hours, and the Shakespearean English, many students still found it to be entertaining and enjoyed the show. Another student, Molly Thibault thought “It was a very well put together production. It really helped me understand the language of the play by seeing it in action.” Overall it was a good experience for our class to create a deeper understanding of Shakespeare’s work.
