Eighth grade teachers Emily Marston and Ashley Opalka have been on a road trip.
Destination? Stratford, Canada, where they have been immersing themselves in all things Shakespeare in preparation for next February's Shakespeare Festival at TPS.
At the Stratford Festival they have seen Hamlet, Taming of the Shrew, Love's Labour's Lost, and The Adventures of Pericles. They have toured the theater, the costume shop, the Shakespeare gardens, and Avondale Cemetery.
Emily and Ashley will be bringing back lots of new ideas for teaching Shakespeare and for staging, props, and theater exercises.
