Shakespeare High is [a] ... documentary that follows a diverse group of California high school students as they prepare for and compete in the 90th Drama Teachers Association of Southern California Shakespeare Festival. Through their passion and working together toward a common goal that reflects and transcends their ethnic and socioeconomic divides, the dedicated teens manage to overcome their own personal hurdles and history. The film focuses primarily on under-privileged teens and highlights the life-changing effects drama programs such [as] this can have on young people. The film follows a compelling group of teens with moving and dramatic personal stories.
This looks to be a great program to allow high school students to express themselves and to escape the possible frustration of troubled home life. It is not just for disadvantaged students it is for everyone to participate in. It's a very good program and a pleasure to watch. ~Mike
