Shakespeare slam team takes first place

May 7, 2015

Beating out 30 other schools, the 2015 OPRF Shakespeare Slam team took first place in Chicago Shakespeare Theatre’s Battle of the Bard Tuesday evening. The team performed the first scene of Taming of the Shrew and a seven-play ensemble mash-up piece entitled “The Seven Ages of Shakespeare.” The team’s renditions had the 350 people gathered around Chicago Shakespeare’s main stage roaring and then enraptured.  Pictured here is the winning team (front, l to r) Jeremy Pesigan, Colin Ford, Olivia Zapater-Charette, and Dallas Koelling; (back, l to r) Sophia Carlin and Kelly Cerniglia.
