8th grade performs the Tempest

8th grade the Tempest

Maple Street School 8th graders performed "The Tempest" by Shakespeare. Throughout the year, students studied the original Shakespeare play, deconstructed it and re-wrote it with a modern twist (set in a magical casino). All of the students participated in the writing, performing, scene construction and directing of the play. This annual 8th grade capstone project is directed by Upper School English Teacher Conor Welch.
