Every year, some students at Gideon Study Center decide to “brush up their Shakespeare” and compete at the annual Pittsburgh Public Theater Shakespeare Monologue & Scene Contest. Shay Freund, a grammar level student attending Gideon Study Center, managed to perform his way to finals and win the Lower Division, Monologue. He portrayed Flute as Thisbe lamenting her beloved Pyramus’s death. A mop stood in as the sweetheart’s corpse.
We congratulate all of our students who competed, especially Shay, for their hard work and performances. Well done!
