In November, the Chicago chapter of the English Speaking Union held its annual National Shakespeare Competition.  Students from the Chicago area received training in theater and performance and competed by performing a brief snippet of Shakespeare. The program begins in classrooms nationwide, culminating in school-wide competitions where students perform a monologue from one of Shakespeare’s plays.  Regional winners will eventually compete in New York City, and the overall winner will receive a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art’s Young Actors Summer School in London.
