Middle School students at The Wardlaw+Hartridge School in Edison warmed the hearts of the audience in a chilly amphitheater with entertaining performances of two Shakespeare plays in May. The seventh graders staged the classic tragedy “Macbeth,” and the eighth graders performed the comedy “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”

Students, parents, teachers and friends attended the performances, which were directed by Dr. Corinna Crafton, Middle School Head, and Ms. Liz Rooney, Middle and Upper School English teacher.
