Drama society readies ‘Shakespeare by the Sea’

The Cayman Drama Society will be celebrating the works of William Shakespeare this weekend in a seaside setting.

CDS will be performing adaptations and excerpts of the Bard’s best-loved works, including A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Julius Ceasar, Taming of the Shrew, and of course, Romeo and Juliet.

These are stories CDS education and operations officer Kirsty O’Sullivan said are full of universal themes.

“It’s struggles of power, love, it’s jealousy, it’s passion, and I think everyone no matter what age or what your background, where you are from, or anything like that, it doesn’t matter, you understand emotions, you understand people, and we’ve all experienced them to varied degrees,” said Ms. O’Sullivan.

The Shakespeare festival happens this Saturday (18 June) from noon to 4 PM at the seaside amphitheater at Dart Family Park (near the National Trust)

The best part, it’s absolutely free.

The timetable is as follows:

  • 12.15pm – Our 12-16s present their version of A Midsummer Nights’ Drea,
  • 1pm – A scene from The Tempest (adults class)
  • 1.20pm – Mini-Macbeth (by our Tuesday 8-12s class)
  • 1.45pm – A scene from Julius Caesar (adults class)
  • 2pm – Mini-Romeo and Juliet (by our Thursday 8-12s class)

  • 2.45pm – Our 5-7s present the A,B,C’s of Shakespeare
