Chelsea Academy performs Shakespearean comedy

A group of lower and middle school students from Chelsea Academy in Front Royal recently performed “The Comedy of Errors,” by William Shakespeare. Students in grades four to eight staged the play for students, family and friends on March 15 and 18.

Under the direction of Chelsea lower school teacher Holly McShurley, students costumed in Elizabethan garb shared the tale of mistaken identity to the delight of their audience. Although edited slightly, the comedy used Shakespeare’s actual lines and was produced with only three weeks of preparation.
