Our students have reviewed five plays of William Shakespeare and selected “The Tempest” to perform in our annual Shakespeare production, to once again be under the direction of George Rodriquez, who brilliantly inspired students throughout memorable presentations of Othello, Henry V and Richard III (available to view on this website). Plays reviewed by students this year included: The Tempest, As You Like It, Henry IV, Julius Cesar & Much Ado About Nothing.
You are invited to join us on May 6 and 7 for ”The Tempest” at the Hardy & Betty Sanders Theater in the cultural district of Fort Worth. Our plays will begin at 7:30 p.m.
The process of studying five different plays, not previously performed, familiarizes students with Shakespeare and selecting one empowers them through decision making. Our challenging Shakespeare plays evolve into a testament to courage and dedication our students exhibit. Other past productions have included Hamlet, Macbeth and Midsummer Night’s Dream.
We have discovered that children come to love Shakespeare as much as we do, when they are introduced in a dynamic, interactive manner.

Movie Synopsis: After deciding to sell their zoo in India and move to Canada, Santosh and Gita Patel board a freighter with their sons and a few remaining animals. Tragedy strikes when a terrible storm sinks the ship, leaving the Patels’ teenage son, Pi (Suraj Sharma), as the only human survivor. However, Pi is not alone; a fearsome Bengal tiger has also found refuge aboard the lifeboat. As days turn into weeks and weeks drag into months, Pi and the tiger must learn to trust each other if both are to survive.
This is an amazing story of a boy in his search to find God and his incredible will to survive. This film is so well done you don’t just see it, you feel it – almost become one with it. We laughed, we cried – the acting and cinematography was so well done, you fell very emotion of Pi just looking in his eyes. Every emotion he had on his journey you feel right along with him. It is a must see for everyone; there are several powerful messages.
