Shakespeare returning to WHS


Seattle Shakespeare Company will return to Cathlamet next week to perform a bilingual production of Macbeth, or “the Spanish Scottish play,” as Wahkiakum High School English teacher Audrey Petterson has come to call it.

The performance is scheduled for April 11 in the high school gym, starting about 10:10 a.m. and will be open to the public.

The company will arrive a day prior to teach educational workshops on Elizabethan dancing and stage fighting to WHS freshmen and sophomores.

“Two of my classes have done extensive study of Macbeth, and others will be doing some abbreviated study after [spring] break,” Petterson said. “We’ve been so fortunate to receive scholarships from the company, and also fortunate for the help of our GEAR UP grant and local supporters like the Columbia River Ranch.”

This will be the third year that Columbia River Ranch has provided housing for the actors.
