Centerstage took a field trip to the Alabama Shakespeare Festival(ASF) in Montgomery on May 05, 2010. They went to go see a great presentation of Shakespeare classic play Hamlet.
For those unfamiliar with Hamlet, it is a tragedy about murder, revenge, and moral corruption. It usually cost around $28 to $42 to watch the performance. However, ASF was very gracious and gave Centerstage free admission.
Mrs. Brown and Centerstage left school at seven in the morning and got back at four in the afternoon. Hamlet began at ten a.m. and ended around one. Hamlet got lots of praises and reviews. Below are a few comments from some of our Centerstage member who saw the show:
Rachel King said, “I really liked the play because it wasn’t modernized. The costumes were authentic, and the actors were really good. I’m looking forward to the next time I get to go back.”
Lizzie Allred said, “This production of Hamlet was by far the best show I’ve ever seen. The actors were very talented. The play was long but definitely worth it.”
Kaitlyn Phillips had this to say: “I had a great time at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival. Hamlet was amazing but super long. Overall I had a great time.”
Emileigh Weide said, “Hamlet was amazing, but it was sad and a little confusing. I had a great time at ASF, and I can’t until I go again next year.”
To conclude, Hamlet was a great production and Mrs. Brown and Centerstage truly enjoyed it. Big thanks again to ASF for giving Centerstage free admission. This play was the last play our senior centerstage members were able to see before they graduate. We hope they had a great time at ASF, and we wish them good luck in their future. Lastly, we would like to congratulate Emileigh Weide for being elected as Centerstage’s 2010-2011 president.
