Bieber Fever



On April 23, 1564, in the town of Stratford-Upon-Avon in England, a boy was born and named William Shakespeare.

On March 1, 1994, in the town of Stratford-Upon-Avon in Canada, a boy was born and named Justin Bieber.

Bieber Fever has hit The Shakespeare Club.

The girls have scrawled J.B., J.B. and more J.B.s all over their journals.

When William Shakespeare fell in love with Anne Hathaway and skipped over to Hewland's farm to court her with poetry and lip-smacking teenage love — according to the girls in Shakespeare Club — he bore an uncanny resemblance to Master Bieber.

Now, I'm going to make a giant leap here: W.S. was educated in Stratford, England, where he studied astronomy, Latin and math. J.B. was educated in a town where schools bear names such as Hamlet Elementary, Anne Hathaway Elementary, Romeo Elementary and Falstaff Middle School.

Don't tell me there's no correlation; the kid's as big any star in the galaxy and we're still performing the Bard over 400 years later.

Our pre-show music for "A Midsummer Night's Dream" will consist entirely of songs with the word "dream" in their lyrics.

One of these songs will be by you know who and you can only imagine the screams when the kids hear it for the first time.

Maybe it's biological, I don't know, but let's face it: Every generation has one.

CHILDREN'S WRITES: A Journal Entry
If I was queen my name would be Queen Natalie. I would be skinny. I would want to rule canada. Canda would be green. My casle will be next to the longest beautiful river. My cloths would made out of coton, silk and with dimons on it. My room would be purple with dimonds. Everybody in Canda has the same rights.

But one day I was on my carage and I saw this young men. The carage pulled over. I said "what's your name!"

He said "Justin Bieber." I said "come in my carage."

We turned around. Then we got the castle and asked "would you marry me."

Justin Bieber said "Yes."

We grow up and had 2 kids. Then my name would be Queen Natalie Bieber.
