We are all familiar with William Shakespeare, the poet and playwright who (apparently) wrote widely popular works which continue to be celebrated, performed, and loved by English teachers everywhere. As we do every year, PGHS celebrated the greatest writer in the English language with Shakespeare day. Students enjoyed a performance of the “The Tempest” by talented students from UC Santa Cruz and some cake at lunch for the 455th birthday of William Shakespeare.

While many audience members could not follow the rapid, Shakespearean language of the play, the general theme and plotline were artfully showcased. Prospero, the former Duke of Milan who was betrayed by her brother, sought to restore her position. Colorful costumes and percussive flourishes highlighted the humorous episodes throughout the play, which lead to Prospero finally forgiving those involved in her betrayal.

The festivities lasted through lunch when the entire school shared giant chocolate and vanilla sheet cakes.

The play was performed by the members of UCSC’s Shakespeare to Go team, comprised of the following students, listed with their current major:
Liam (Theater)

Maria Veronica (Psychology)

Trishana (Theater and Spanish)

Jackie (Theater and Literature)

Carl (Computer Science)

Keegan (Theater)

Helen (Feminist Studies)

Stage Manager: M (Theater)
