Fifty-six budding Shakespearean scholars from the Creekview Elementary School PEAK (Providing Experiences and Activities for KIDS) program visited Utah State University-College of Eastern Utah this week. Their purpose was to get some behind the scenes education about Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet," the upcoming production of the USU Eastern's Theater Department.

The students were treated to backstage tours of sets and lighting, a lecture on the History of The Geary Theater, a workshop on Shakespearian Language interpretation and another on theatrical sword fighting choreography. The workshops were provided by the faculty and students of the USU Eastern Theatre Department.

Dr. Corey Ewan of the USU Eastern theater department stated, "This was a great opportunity for me and the USU Eastern Theatre students to meet with a very sharp and enthusiastic group of students. I was extremely impressed with how much they actually knew about Shakespeare, Elizabethan Theatre and theatre in general."

This experience for public school students follows a long line of public school/USU Eastern joint activities including Physics/Engineering Department's pumpkin chuckin' contest, the Biology Department's Cadaver Days with local high schools, the Automotive Technology Department's Odyssey (alternative fuels) Day, and the Business Department's Future Business Leader's Competition and the Criminal Justice Department's CSI: Price experience.
