Our school's Shakespeare competition winner had the privilege to compete in the regional competition, sponsored by the English Speaking Union and held at Belmont University in Nashville. The competition was held in a small theater space with seats on three sides and the judges sat among to audience. The audience was filled with family members, teachers, and fellow students who came to support their winner. Although we are small school we had, by far, the most student support. There was a wide variety of Shakespeare pieces presented ranging from comedy to tragedy and a wide variety of talent that presented them. After the competition we celebrated by going out to eat and socialize at a restaurant of our contestants’ choice.
