The image is of my son playing the character Le Bret in our high school play of Cyrano back in November. Earlier this week our high school held a Shakespeare Competition. A handful of kids participated, and each had to memorize and act out a monologue from a Shakespeare play. My 14 year old son participated. His monologue was from Romeo and Juliet. On Monday he tied with another student, so they had to repeat their performance on Tuesday. Tuesday night my son was announced the winner! On March 7th he will go to a workshop taught by the drama instructors at the local university. Then on March 11th he will compete again against about a dozen other area schools. The winner of that competition gets an all expenses paid trip to New York City for yet another competition.. The winner of the New York City competition gets to go to London! I really don't expect my son to make it to New York this year.. but the fact that he gets to go to this workshop taught by the university instructors is really cool! Wish him luck (err.. no, it's break a leg!)
