2015 PPT Shakespeare Monologue and Scene Contestants


For the third year, hobnob coached several students for the Pittsburgh Public Theater's annual Shakespeare Monologue and Scene contest.  Over 1000 students perform bits of the Bard's plays during the two week contest.  

In yesterday's 4:00 time slot, the group performed along with students from Central Catholic, Winchester Thurston, and the Indiana Players.
Elijah Errington, Madison Burtner, and Kara Whitmire performed a funny and physical scene from The Comedy of Errors, Act 2 Scene 1.  Kara performed a monologue as Portia from The Merchant of Venice.  And Madison performed Paulina from The Winter's Tale.
Chesna Tomko, Anthony Tomko, Coral Sweetapple, and Rowan and Sawyer Smith performed the wrestling scene from As You Like It.  Chesna performed Helena from A Midsummer Night's Dream.
Noelle Ledford performed "the quality of mercy" monologue from The Merchant of Venice.
