Shakespearean classic, which features a diverse group of promising young students, including first-years Isabelle Briggs, Malcolm Campbell-Taylor, Kate Donnelly, Alex Gustafson, Alex Horning, Charlotte Shapiro, Ryan Shafranek, Jasmine Verreen, and Annie Woller; along with sophomores Maria Cox, Bridget Hillyer, Bobby Kogan, and Derrick Schrock; and seniors Nathan Comstock, Tim Gilliss, Alex Kiriakidis, and Laura Vandiver.
