While some youngsters lounged by the pool this summer, four local students spent three days learning Shakespeare, and then had the courage to perform what they had learned on the big stage prior to a play done by professional actors.

Tanishqa Ragesh, 10, of Solon, Victoria Sequera, 14, of Mayfield Heights, Tessa Silverberg, 13, of Solon and Joe Arias, 17, of Solon all participated in the Solon Center for the Arts’ Studying Shakespeare Workshop, Aug. 10-12. On Aug. 13, they performed a monologue and a scene from the play, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” to an audience at the Chagrin Arts’ Shakespeare in the Park performance of the same play.
