Lee’s Summit teens Claire Davis and Jordan Spatz will be featured in the pre-performance entertainment at the Heart of America Shakespeare Festival.
Both students are members of Team Shakespeare, the Festival’s teen apprentice troupe.
The troupe members are creating a parody of “As You Like It” for the Green Show.
The performance will entertain children and adults while helping them brush up on the plot.
Teaching artist and actor Matt Rapport worked with the students to develop a story line for the spoof, but there is no script. The troupe members will improvise every performance with unpredictable and hilarious results.
Davis, a student at Blue Springs South, and Spatz, a student at Lee’s Summit, High School will perform at 6:30 and 7:15 every other night during the festival.
