SF Shakespeare: The Misadventures of Falstaff

And the kids had their play, a never-quite seen before set of excerpts from Henry IV.  The kids are less-than-enthusiastic about shortened scripts that don't tell the full story the way that the Bard intended, but they gave this a try.  Their impression of the outcome is still pending reflection, but I thought that they did a great job on stage and the costumes were awesome.

The best part of the day was before the class began.  Two and then three of their friends arrived early at the house and they were all full of such happy energy...   The girls take their Shakespeare seriously and part of taking it seriously is having such serious fun.

Missing one... but my battery died after taking this, so I'm just left bummed...
