[Kaneland High School students Jack Lasater and Evangeline Beck rehearse a scene from "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) [revised]." The play will be performed Nov. 17 through 19 at the school.]
There are many opportunities to be dramatic and uninhibited with acting, according to Lasater. Lasater’s cast mate, Kaneland High School junior Evangeline Beck, describes Lasater’s character as a hooligan.
“Jack’s character is a hooligan,” Beck said. “He’s the child. Leonardo and I are the parents. This play is a jumble of Shakespearean mess. It’s like organized chaos. The most challenging part is reading and speaking Shakespeare and memorizing the lines. For ‘Othello,’ we are rapping, and it’s so much fun. It’s a wonderful mess.”
