Shakespeare slam team headed to the finals

April 20, 2015

The OPRF Shakespeare slam team has advanced to the finals in the Battle of the Bard competition sponsored by Chicago Shakespeare Theater and Chicago Youth Shakespeare.  The team of six students is among the eight teams out of 30 advancing to the finals, which take place on Tuesday, May 5 at 6:30 p.m. on Chicago Shakespeare Theater’s main stage (800 E. Grand Ave., Chicago).  Our students put forth some really creative and dynamic performances; their group piece, for example, is a five-minute mash-up of seven plays showing the “seven ages of man.” The 2015 OPRF Battle of the Bard Slam Team is Sophia Carlin, Kelly Cerniglia, Colin Ford, Dallas Koelling, Jeremey Pesigan, and Olivia Zapater-Charette.
