News From Ramaz
The annual Ramaz Shakespeare Recital Competition took place this week at the Upper School. There was a small, but strong, field of competitors who each presented a soliloquy of at least 20 lines from one of Shakespeare's plays. Contestants were judged by the English department on the following criteria: a) conveying an understanding of the speech, 2) memorization, 3) acting ability. Elegant refreshments were served. The winner, who will receive a volume containing the complete works of Shakespeare, was Basia F-D, who performed a speech by Rosalind from As You Like It - congratulations!
