Thanks to the South Hamilton School Foundation mini grant, 38 students from the language arts classes were able to attend a Shakespearean production in Ames at Stephens Auditorium. The Aquila Theatre Company presented an hour-long adaptation of William Shakespeare's comedy A Midsummer Night's Dream. The acting company then answered questions from the audience.
We were thrilled when we received approval from the South Hamilton Foundation. This was a tremendous opportunity for our language arts classes as it enhanced the students' understanding and appreciation of Shakespearean dramas. The students enjoyed the production as much as we did. -- Mrs. Pulis and Mrs. Gray
I was expecting it to be really boring, but it wasn't. They did a nice job explaining what was going on. -- Ricki Rohloff
Thank you to the South Hamilton School Foundation for enabling us to benefit from this cultural event! It is a day we won't forget!
