Hamlet draws Polk Middle students to Asheville production

Members of the eighth grade accelerated English Language Arts class at Polk County Middle School recently attended Warehouse Productions’ version of Shakespeare’s Hamlet in Asheville.

Students have spent the past month reading the play and studying Shakespeare’s life and times. They will finish the unit with a masquerade of the characters as well as writing, directing, acting and producing their own short films based on the themes and motifs of the play.

Students followed the play with a picnic in Pack Square.
