Led by the talented and inspiring actor Mike Stack, Serena and her 14 friends at South Delta Homelearners put on a presentation of Macbeth after a month-long intensive workshop. Mike has a way of making the whole process so much fun that all the kids had an absolute blast. Serena loved it so much that she's already planning on doing it again in the fall!
* See our next posting for some video clips of Serena performing as Lady Macbeth.
Right before her own performance, Serena got extra inspiration at Bard on the Beach, our annual Shakespearean treat. We went to see The Tempest this year and it did not disappoint!
This Bard production cleverly swapped Trinculo and Stephano, the king's jester and butler in Shakespeare's original, with Trincula and Stephana, two ladies of the court. Serena & I loved the humour they added on stage, but we both think the sparkling Ariel was simply outstanding. She has a beautiful voice and her songs gave that magical touch to a fantastical story!
