Arrows Compete in Annual Shakespeare and Macbeth Competitions

On December 10, students in grades 9-12 were invited to demonstrate their acting prowess and memorization skills by performing a speech from one of the Bard's plays in the Shakespeare Competition. Faculty judges Mr. Mark Rogers, Mr. Michael Deschenes, and Mr. Christopher Lynch chose Alessandro Barbiellini '21 to represent St. Sebastian's for the third year in a row. He will move on to compete at the regional semifinals of the ESU's (English Speaking Union) national high school competition held at Mt. Ida College on February 1.

On December 19, the sophomore English classes congregated in the McCulloch Room for the annual Macbeth Competition. The students competed for the prize of being the witchiest weird sister, the ghostliest poor player, or the greatest gory-locked Banquo. Ultimately, the panel of faculty judges awarded 1st place and $25 gift cards to Andy Hassey '22 and Ryan Donovan '22. Joey Santosuosso '22 won an individual prize for best actor for the grade.

Thank you to all the students who participated in this year's Macbeth and Shakespeare Competitions.
