Hamlet's visit to our school!
Today, the 5th and 6th classes of our school attended a special theatrical play; a comic adaptation of Shakespeare's 'Hamlet' in English!
After a number of preparatory lessons the students were already familiar with the plot, the characters and the playwright himself. What followed was this lovely 60-minute theatrical performance which had everything: laughter, singing, madness, love, death, swords, fighting, a puppet show and even... a rat! The kids laughed a lot, participated in the play, sang and, in the end, rapped with Hamlet, Gertrude and Ophelia about the question 'To be or not to be?'! Eventually, they prefered 'to be'!
For most students it was the first time they got to see an English-speaking play so they didn't really know what to expect... Would they be able to follow? Well, they did just fine and they really enjoyed the play, as they said!
