SHAKESPEARE THEATRE
Hamlet performed on SBA Stage

The English department welcomed a group of professional actors from The Philadelphia Shakespeare Theater to perform Hamlet on our very own SBA Stage. Our students were so excited to have this incredible opportunity to see the play and interact with the actors on stage!   It was an engaging and creative performance that presented the students with an opportunity to apply what they have studied in the classroom and connect with Shakespeare in ways that classroom instruction cannot hope to achieve.
