mel: Well hello, why don't you tell us your name, your grade and what parts you played?

lizzie: My name is Lizzie and I'm in fourth grade and I played the doctor and the witches' chorus.

Two.

I like how we get to act and stuff. Really fun...and like knowing more about William Shakespeare.

What do you think you learned about yourself, Lizzie, in Shakespeare Club?

[Lizzie takes a long time to answer. She licks her lips. She thinks] I learned that I could act better than last year. And I learned that I could have courage.


And what do you think you want to be when you grow up?

An actor.

What do you like about being onstage? Isn't it scary?

No. What I like about being onstage is like...um...is that I don't really get scared because sometimes what I think about is only one person being out there and watching and then I don't get scared.


How did you feel when it was all over?

Sad. I was sad when it was all over because I wanted to act in more shows.

How does it feel being famous?

Fun. It's fun getting all the attention.

What did you like best about it?

Rehearsal and doing the shows.


CHILDREN'S WRITES: A Journal Entry
I think beening in Shakespeare changed me. Yes, I did make my goal. All the things at the beginning of the year I wrote came true. I found lots of courage. And yes I recommend Shakespeare for many other people after this year.

I will miss Mrs. Ryane and Mrs. Rachel. I will miss the insult game, the complement game and the movies. I'll also miss my new family. I am going to 6th grade and there is a really good chance there isn't going to be a Shakespeare Club. My life had changed from beening in Shakespeare for 2 yrs.

I will visit and come to the plays.
Faith, 5th grade
