Shakespeare in the Park: Starring Rachel!

Mrs. Bonaccorso introduced the program after Rachel sang an opening number

Last night Elaine and I thoroughly enjoyed an evening at the Anglican School of Jerusalem, where the secondary school put on a number of scenes from famous plays of William Shakespeare in the front garden.  Besides starring as Kate in a hilarious scene from "Taming of the Shrew," Rachel also sang a number of songs in between acts, as well as performing a brief number as the "clown" in the scene from "Twelfth Night."

Rachel looked lovely, performed wonderfully, and sang beautifully!  We were very proud of her, and we are grateful to Anglican and especially Mrs. Bonaccorso, the drama teacher and director.   Thanks also to Rachel's friend Annie Lopez, shared these pictures with us because Dad had forgotten his camera!

Rachel played Katherine, or "Kate," opposite Johannes Exeler, who played Petruchio.

Goofing off with Annie . . .

Why should the guys have all the fun? Some of the boys had a choreographed battle at the beginning of the Richard III scene.  Here, earlier in the day, Annie and Rachel, try their hand at medieval warfare!
