  • Watching the Wild West rendition of Romeo and Juliet, freshman Abbey Thompson laughs as her classmates perform. Students in the sixth hour class were assigned to research one of four historical time periods: Victorian England, 1930’s Germany, colonial India or the Wild West. “I worked with a lot of people I hadn’t known at the beginning of the year,” Thompson said. “Now we’re best friends. [The project] really brought us together.”

  • With a blanket draped over her body, freshman Elizabeth Mosher imitates a tornado. Her group was tasked with rewriting the play, originally set in 14th Century Italy, to occur in the Wild West. “We came up with that idea as a way to get Romeo’s family to come back and have all the drama start,” freshman Olivia Zerega, a member of the group who helped create the script, said. “It wasn’t that [scary] because we had worked with [the script] and we knew what was going to happen.”

  • Performing their Victorian England reprise of Romeo and Juliet, freshmen Trinity Mathis and Abbey Thompson act out a scene from their self-written script. The group had two days to rehearse the performance after submitting the written portion of their project. “Being able to act out the work that we put into it at the end, that was really fun,” Thompson said. “We went to Savers down the street and got costumes, trench coats and stuff to really get into character.”

  • To complete the final portion of a project lasting over a month, freshman Olivia Zerega performs her adapted Romeo and Juliet script. In addition to the script, her group was also responsible for designing props and creating set and costume illustrations. “I enjoyed working with my friends and acting out [the scene],” Zerega said. “I learned more about research and time management. We started by what we wanted to keep from the [original] story and then we filled in the holes.”

  • Explaining the historical context of their group’s colonial India-themed script, freshmen Fatema Rehmani and Sri Jaladi speak to their Honors English 1 classmates. Students researched topics including historical events, clothing, housing, culture and the daily life of people from their assigned era. “It was challenging and definitely required us to push ourselves,” Jaladi said. “It was a great experience learning how to not procrastinate and stay organized.”
