by Madison Mento ’21

Drama students from area high schools tested their talents on the Hofstra Globe Stage when they participated in the annual high school competition of Hofstra’s 70th Annual Shakespeare Festival. Schools performed scenes from classic Shakespeare plays on March 7 and 8 and received valuable critique from Hofstra Drama faculty, including Royston Coppenger, chair of the Department of Drama and Dance; and Professors Rychard Curtiss, Christopher Dippel, Jennifer Hart and Cindy Rosenthal.
