-Mary E. Moore – TeacherKelso’s ability to mix the modern language with some of the original lines helps to create a play that is engaging to watch.
-Amy – TeacherI heard it around the school for several weeks afterwards!
-sscragg – TeacherI read “Julius Caesar” first with my 8 year-old son and he loved it. After all it had ghosts and sword swinging… so what’s not for a boy to love.

-3rd grade TeacherThese plays are hilarious and fun!
