An Interview: Mary



mel: And you are?

mary: My name is Mary, I'm in third grade and I played Lord Ross in "Macbeth."

Why did you want to be in Shakespeare Club?

Because I love to perform and I love to go in front of audiences.

How old were you when you discovered that about yourself?

Five or six.

How did you find out?

Well, because...um, in kindergarten I did a play for the rest of the class and I had a lot of fun so I wanted to do it more.

What do you like about it?

It's just...it's just fun to feel like you're a famous person and you go back to class and everyone's like, 'Oh, it's Mary!' "


Did anything surprise you about being in Shakespeare Club?

Yeah, I didn't know it was going to be this fun, it was really fun. I just love performing and I love Shakespeare....Shakespeare is awesome.

What was your favorite thing about Performance Day?

My favorite performance was dress rehearsal because I got to perform in front of my class.

Now, I understand you're moving away.

Well yeah, I'm not moving houses but moving schools to this school nearby....It's a Christian school.

And how do you feel about that?

I'm kinda excited but I kinda want to stay here because I love Shakespeare.

Well, you have to start one there.

Yeah.


CHILDREN'S WRITES: A Journal Entry
I loved Shakespeare club because....

I go to be an actrice, I felt accepted by my class and the school, I got to see what it is like living a long, long time ago, and I got to perform.

I think the second graders should do Shakespeare because I did not think I would like it, but at the end of the year I liked it sooo much.

I will miss all my friends, I will miss performing, I will doing Macbeth and the cool light and sound. I will miss Ms. Ryane and Ms. Rachel. I will miss many many things, but most of all I will miss having fun in Shakespeare Club.
