The 18th Annual CHS Shakespeare Festival will be aired on YouTube at 7PM this Saturday, June 20. The link will be posted on the website www.novelteacher.com (the site can only be accessed with a “somsd” email account; Village Green will share the YouTube link when it becomes available).
But due to coronavirus, this year’s Festival will be virtual.
“We have dozens of student performers with scenes from eighteen different plays!” says Columbia High School teacher and Shakespeare Festival organizer Stephen MacPherson. “All has been done remotely and the kids really did a great job and on their own for the most part!”
This year, MacPherson requested students, alumni and community members create and submit scenes while observing social distancing rules. The deadline for submissions was May 22nd. Follow the Shakespeare Festival on Instagram @chs_shakespeare_club
