Shakespeare Competition 2014

Shakespeare Competition

            Shakespeare Competition is a wonderful event! For the first time in my life I took part in such a Competition.  I have not expected that it will gather so many school and university students from all over Kirovograd region. More than 60 participants took part in the competition and they all did an amazing job. It was so thrilling for me and I am sure for everyone to listen to Shakespeare’s sonnets in their various interpretations. I was also very much impressed by all visual and sound effects, music, decoration, costumes, used by the performers to communicate important ideas about life and love. I felt like I attended a performance at some English drama school. The drama school which I had never attended but always dreamed about.

I am sure performing Shakespeare empowers and transforms the performer.  I personally have discovered a lot about Shakespeare and his works, have mastered my English and drama skills and have become more self-confident.I have also understood thatShakespeare belongs to everyone and his works are topical for modern youth all over the world!

Moreover, Shakespeare Competition made my and my group mates day! We had a wonderful time together: meeting different interesting people, rooting for the friends and growing in friendship and love for each other. To those who will read this article I have only one suggestion – go ahead, become a member of the ESU and make your life more interesting and exciting.
