We invite all schools serving Grades 9-12 in our area to participate in the 2016 Shakespeare Competition. In this program, high school students nationwide read, analyze, perform and recite Shakespearean monologues and sonnets in as many as three qualifying stages: school, community (ESU Branch) and national levels. This year the National Finals are on Monday, May 2, at Lincoln Center in New York City.
