WILLIAM

The Brilliant Bard from Stratford-upon-Avon takes a different spin in this rap-musical. Five high schoolers struggle with understanding Shakespeare’s seemingly irrelevant text. Their lack of interest in the subject resulted to grabbed research and reports from the Internet, to their teacher’s dismay. As makeup work, each must act out a scene from a Shakespearean play; the students realize the beauty of the text, and re-discover themselves through Shakespeare’s characters.
