Drama Students Begin Shakespeare Production

At the start of second semester, Drama 2 and Honors Drama started to learn about the movie “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” by William Shakespeare, this year’s inspiration for the main feature that will be played at the Shakespeare Film Festival. 

Shakespeare Film Festival is a yearly event in which the drama department showcases a film they have curated based on a Shakespeare story.

To start the process, the drama students started watching the movie in class. Then, Mr. Rocca, drama teacher, separated the students into groups and had them analyze the fashion, lifestyle, culture, and setting of the movie. Each aspect was assigned to a specific group. Once that step was finished, the film’s script was crafted by Mr. Rocca and Christopher Huy Pham (‘24). Finally, they gave it the name “A Midsummer in Paris.” 

Using that same script, Mr. Rocca held auditions for all the roles in the play. The major roles for this year’s play are characters: Genevieve, Florent, Angelique, and Charles. After auditions were held, roles were assigned to Hoang Le (‘25), as Florent, Chloe Sotelo (‘25), as Anqelique, Htun Naing Win (‘25), as Charles, and Abigail Aguirre (‘27), as Genevieve. 

Now that the basics have been established, the drama crew is excited to start filming, which will be in about two weeks.
