  • 'A Midwinter Night's Scream'

    Sanborn Regional High School students put the “shake” back in Shakespeare during two public performances held in the school auditorium, celebrating Sanborn’s Shakespeare Month. Students found that Shakespeare was written to be performed, not to be read. The young men and women dedicated themselves to a month-long intensive workshop (more than twenty students) that culminated in ‘A Midsummer Night’s Scream’, written and directed by Donna Devlin-Young.
