Drama Class!

Here at Georges Vanier, every student takes part in drama class once a week with Ms. Deacon. Today Mark von Eschen from Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan came for a visit. He helped us learn the prologue from Romeo and Juliet and taught us to project our voices and articulate our words so "even the deaf old lady in the back can hear."

Above we have half of the Gr. 8 class (team Montague) and below the other half 
(team Capulet- Claire and I- go team!) as Mark instructs us.

We also have the video from when CTV came: 

Our part is about half way through.

"Two households, both alike in dignity,
In fair Verona, where way lay our scene,
From ancient grudge,  break to new mutiny,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life;
Whose misadventured piteous overthrows
Do with their death bury their parents' strife.
The fearful passage of their death-mark'd love,
And the continuance of their parents' rage, 
Which, but their children's end, not could remove,
Is now the two hours' traffic of our stage;
The which if you with patient ears attend,
What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend."

Prologue, Romeo and Juliet
