The seasons are changing, there is a chill in the air, and students from all of our high schools and some junior high schools loaded onto busses with iambic pentameter (a type of metric line used in verse drama) running through their heads as they set off to represent Nebo School District at the annual Shakespeare Competition in  Cedar City, Utah. 

Nebo’s fine arts specialist, Karen Kidd, a former theatre teacher with a special appreciation for Shakespeare Competition notes, “The students and teachers hit the ground running at the start of the school year in order to be ready for the  Shakespeare competition. This is a non-stop competitive event that brings schools from Utah and neighboring states together for a whirlwind weekend of rounds in acting, dance, music, stage tech, and now a digital component. Students have the opportunity to put their knowledge on display, learn from each other, and work with some of the best people in the business. It is as exciting as it is exhausting! I appreciate the quality of teachers that we have in our district and the dedication and excitement that our students bring to their learning, tech work, and performances!” 

Additionally, Nebo students have the opportunity to attend skill workshops and play performances presented by The Utah Shakespeare Festival and the Southern Utah University Theatre Department. 

Of note, Salem Hills High took Second Place with their ensemble from Henry V and their tech team took Second Place in the Tech Olympics. 

Nebo is proud of you – excellent job on how to “Rise Up!”

Congratulations to Amy Burge for answering this week’s “Where are we Wednesday?” challenge sponsored by Wiggy Wash.
