Funnery brings Shakespeare to Highgate Apartments

By: Leslie Black-Plumeau on 8/8/2013

Highgate Apartments in Barre recently hosted the 2-week Highgate Funnery Shakespeare Camp.  Eighteen children ages 10 to 15 from Highgate Apartments and nearby Green Acre Apartments worked very hard to prepare a performance of Macbeth, arguably one of Shakespeare’s darkest and most demanding plays.

After a rousing performance, the actors received accolades from their ardent fans, T-shirts, and attendance and participation awards made possible through a grant secured by Peter Gould and the Funnery.  Three of the actor-participants who were siblings used their attendance awards to cap off performance day with a back-to-school shopping trip and dinner out for their family.
