Annual Shakespeare Competition
The North-East Branch is closed until 2 p.m. today, Monday, August 31 due to a water outage.
Area high school students bring Shakespeare’s work to life through their unique interpretation of his monologues and sonnets. The competition, created by the English Speaking Union, aims to develop students’ speaking and critical thinking skills as they explore Shakespeare.
Previous winners have gone on to win the national competition in New York, where the winner is awarded a full tuition scholarship to the British American Drama Academy’s Midsummer Conservatory Program.
