As You Like It: Clinton Middle’s Annual Play

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


On March 10th and 11th, the normally bare gymnatorium was decked in cardboard trees and the stage floor was littered in multi-colored tissue paper. These decorations set the scene for Clinton’s annual lower grades Shakespeare play, As You Like It. In this play, Rosalind (Darah Barenholtz) is banished from the Royal Court and flees with her cousin Celia (Catherine Coats) to the Forests of Arden, where her family has already found refuge. She disguises herself as a man, and Celia as her brother. In the forest, she comes across love interest Orlando (Hudson Flynn). There are a number of songs in the play that the Clinton cast made their own. They also added their own touches to the score, and opened Act Two with a rendition of “Count On Me” by Bruno Mars. Some characters also picked up instruments of their own during the course of the play, like Le Beau (Rose Cohen) on the flute and Corin (Mairead O’Neill) on the ukulele
