NORTH SALEM, N.Y.--Twenty three of North Salem’s sixth, seventh and eighth graders gave the audience a rundown of Shakespeare’s classics on Friday night in “I Hate Shakespeare,” a play by Steph DeFerie.
The crowd was in stitches as some of The Bard’s beloved characters played their well-known role while cast in modern-day scenarios.
Juliet, of “Romeo and Juliet,”  still commits the ultimate sin, but this time it’s after she tries her luck on “The Dating Game,” hosted by Jessica Lange, and things don’t end well. 
“It made me laugh,”  said Lesley Hoagg, the drama club adviser, of her decision to perform this show. “That’s pretty much the criteria I have with any play.”
