Princeton WannaBe Blog

I'm not a real historian.   I didn't grow up in Princeton.    I don't have an Ivy League education.   

I'm a total Princeton WannaBe. 

Still, I gush about loving the heart of Princeton as much as I can!




Seriously? 5th Graders in Princeton Love Hamlet? Is It In the Water?

Just when I thought I might have to recycle my gushy blogs about Princeton .....

Enter Hamlet ........

(The school program offered to local schools by McCarter Theatre.  Bill Ciruillo and the PTO of Riverside raise money to make sure the kids get exposed to the classics in theater ...)

Performed by Riverside Elementary .......

Directed by Rebecca .....

( I didn't learn her last name - I prefer to keep her in character in my mind - I heard she's a genius at theater, production and artistic education.  She even starred on Broadway!  I KNOW!     Anyhoo, all I know is she made my son fall in love with Shakespeare so, to me, she's a bit of a heavenly being  .....)


Rebecca brought in a REAL fight choreographer with Broadway experience ...

Rebecca brought in HUGE speakers with modern songs like "Let's Dance" to break up the dialogue .....

Rebecca made this classic relevant the kids so they're more likely to stay curious about theater!

(If you're decent at reading  between the lines, she and the gang at Riverside and McCarter Theatre made sure EVERYONE felt like a super star.  More importantly, these kids are learning that cultural arts add to the joy in your life! 

Just ask Stosh and his buddies!
