The Bard of Avon

What is your favorite William Shakespeare piece?

I have been participating for the past two semesters in a class called Planet Shakespeare. Planet Shakespeare is a class where we study about Shakespeare and his plays. The biggest part of the class is that we get to perform his plays.

Last semester we performed the Comedy of Errors. The Comedy of Errors is a play about a father, mother, two brothers and their servants getting separated from each other. I was Antipholus of Syracuse, one of the brothers. There are lots of funny mistakes that will keep you laughing the whole time!

This semester we’re studying  the Tempest. The Tempest is about a group of people getting ship wrecked on an island and lots of crazy adventures  happen.  Prospero, the former duke of Milan, is the main character. His spirit called Ariel makes the storm called the Tempest. I have several parts in this play.

This is an animation of the Tempest. I liked this video because it uses Shakespeare’s language. I’m also keen on the clay work and the puppets. Please enjoy!

  1. The Tempest is actually one of my favorites! What a great animation — Mia was still feeling sick today and it cheered her up immensely to get to watch it. Thanks for finding it and sharing your thoughts with us!
