A Midsummer Night’s Dream at Stilwell

Students in Katie Seiberling’s advanced eighth grade English class recently performed an adaptation of William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” After reading the text in class, students applied for cast and crew roles. The production was entirely student-led. Committees edited the script, created a set, costumed actors, applied a musical soundtrack, and directed and managed their peers. The crew gained valuable experience in interpreting a text and working collaboratively. The cast honed their skills as interpreters of language and effective public performers. The entire cast and crew would like to thank Ella McCauley, Stilwell alum, for her help and leadership during this project.
