The Young Shakespeareans of

John Adams Middle School 

are proud to present

Performances, Scenics, Costumes, & Sound 

created by students on

May 13 & 14, 2021

 

because we really mean it when we say

" IF I CAN DO SHAKESPEARE ,

   I CAN DO ANYTHING! "

COVID-19 closures on March 13, 2020 impacted everyone,

particularly devastating our 4th and 5th graders who were mere days away from performance. Many tears were shed.

Driven to model a healthy and creative way to deal with difficult circumstances, on March 24

we continued online with added instruction in

performing for the camera, framing, and DIY lighting and costuming.

The Young Shakespeareans of John Adams Middle School, though challenged,

persevered with enthusiasm and determination 

to close their 2020 season with a beautiful online performance of

"ROMEO + JULIET".

you gotta' watch

"I've been participating in TYS for 3 years now.  It's had an influence on all aspects of my life.

I used to be a very shy, soft spoken person, who really didn't participate. Now when I start talking, people have a hard time quieting me down - theatre was a major confidence boost in my self esteem.

The whole experience has made me a more comfortable public speaker, and I am capable of having a mature conversation with adults. For instance, I've performed at a few benefits and represented TYS to outside organizations. I’ve also shot documentary footage interviewing younger students, and convinced my principal at John Adams Middle School to bring in TYS.

The Young Shakespeareans has helped me recognize my potential for success and as we say,  

'If I can do Shakespeare I can do anything!' ”
