CYDEC Conference 2019

Shakespeare festival celebrates, aims to motivate

Cayman’s thespians and education department joined forces with the Cayman Drama Society to present the Shakespeare Festival on Sunday 17 June.
The festival consisted of repeat scenes from Julius Caesar and adaptations with mini-plays.

Festival organizer Kristy O’Sullivan had the following to say:

“So we actually, we’ve chosen text that is being studied in schools in Cayman. Most students and most people that get education here will have to learn Shakespeare at some point and I think this early exposer to it is really what can aid them in understanding and be appreciated rather than seeing it as something daunting and I also think the most important thing about Shakespeare is to see it instead of reading it, is to actually have the visual in front of you.”

The Cayman Islands drama society wishes to bring awareness to the public on how important Shakespeare is for the education system.
