Fifty-two English 9 students of Mrs. Deborah Slayton and Ms. Eva Cassada saw Aquila Theatre's production of "Romeo and Juliet" at The Prizery arts center in South Boston on Oct. 8. The New Yorker magazine describes Aquila's productions as “The classics made relevant with superb acting and clever staging” while The New York Times raves, “an extraordinarily inventive and disciplined outfit.” Based in New York City, the cast's actors were all trained on the London stage; one was born in Singapore, and another in Istanbul. Students also visited The Prizery's art gallery and took in its Revolutionary War exhibit that details the Dan River's role in the campaign for American independence.
