December 7, 2011 - King’s was recently awarded a grant of almost $1,000 to develop teacher study guides for the student performances of “Merry Wives of Windsor,” this year’s Shakespeare production.
King’s has been including a work by Shakespeare as part of its annual season of plays for the last 59 years. Each year, private performances of the Shakespeare play are held on weekdays for high school students from throughout the Wyoming Valley, Lehigh Valley, and the Poconos.
The grant was from the PA Partners in the Arts (PPA), a partnership between local organizations and the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts. PPA is administered in the northeastern PA region by the Pocono Arts Council and is available to non-profit organizations and individual artists conducting arts programming in the counties of Lackawanna, Luzerne, Monroe, Pike and Wayne.
Pictured are the King’s students and faculty members who produced the study guide from grant funds. Pictured seated, from left, are students Brandi George and Rachael Pompeii.
