Tennessee Shakespeare Co & Barynya come to WCDS!

January 19, 2018

 

Wayne Country Day School's commitment to the celebration of diversity and promotion of cultural awareness was front and center this week! Students in grades 6 - 12 were delighted by the performances of two very special groups: Tennessee Shakespeare Co. and Barynya.

Barynya is a Russian music, dance, and song troupe who have performed at Carnegie Hall, the Smithsonian, and the United Nations to name a few venues. In addition to teaching us several Russian words, this talented threesome wowed us with traditional Russian, Ukrainian, Cossack, and Gypsy music and dance!

Tennessee Shakespeare Co. brought their production of Shake(s), Rattle & Roll to WCDS's Performing Arts Center. This show lovingly links the signature music of Memphis to the works of Shakespeare that the troupe imagined inspired them. Students enjoyed a whirlwind of scenes and soliloquies - performed by very talented thespians - that ultimately brought WCDS students to their feet for a standing ovation! 

These valuable opportunities for students are just more examples of what makes Wayne Country Day School great!
