Cassie Takes the Stage

    "There was a star danced, and under that was I born." - William Shakespeare, Much Ado About Nothing, 2.1
        A pleasant Matinée performance of your eleven year old Grand girl in Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing  may not  be common summer afternoon fare for many, but it is actually not too unusual in Montgomery Alabama.
        The world renowned --seriously folks, World Class –– Alabama Shakespeare Festival (ASF)  hosts summer classes in which grade-schoolers learn, choreograph, and present  a Shakespeare play.  They learn the lines, create the props, make their costumes, do a little sword fighting, rig the lights, inject a few dances of their own, rehearse and go live on a professional stage IN A WEEK!
      Both girls have enjoyed this pre blog, but here is a sample of our star’s current work.

      "I do love nothing in the world so well as you. Is that not strange?”  ditto
