  • Crafts and games outdoors, including face painting, nine-pin bowling, badminton, archery, catapult, and more!
  • Traveling musicians and jugglers making the rounds
  • First and second grade girls perform the Maypole Dance
  • Classroom projects on display in our Shakespeare Museum
  • Entertaining performance of a Shakespeare play by our middle school actors. Third through fifth graders perform sonnets and couplets at the start of the play.

Thank you to all our students, families and staff who made the Shakespeare Festival a success!

Why Shakespeare?

Middle school teacher and Redeemer School alum Preston Lindsay shared his thoughts about why Shakespeare is such an important part of our school tradition over on our blog.

Costumes

Students and families are encouraged to dress the part for our Shakespeare Festival. No need to stress, though; you probably have the makings of a great costume in your closet!

Here are some ideas to help you put together a homemade costume.
