Shakespeare in a Week

CAST pic 1.jpg

Every year, the entire school puts regularly scheduled classes on hold to create our annual Shakespeare performing arts production in one week!


In 2002, Heritage first participated in Shakespeare in a Week (SIAW). As the student body grew, we undertook our first solo, full blown production in 2004 with our performance of Henry V. Two decades later, SIAW continues to be a favorite activity for students and staff alike.


During this unique week, all classes are suspended as students spend each day participating in the acting company or working on a committee. The committees work on building sets, creating costumes and props, designing hair and makeup, providing audio visual support, and creating promotional material. Before this week, lines have been memorized and some costumes sewn, but the rest of the play comes together between Monday and Friday.  


While the play isn't always Shakespearean, we always tackle a challenging dramatic production. By the end of SIAW, we have created a performance that is not only a wonderful learning experience, but is also a lot of fun.
