Four earn individual honors in parody of Shakespeare's plays 

FALMOUTH After months of rehearsals and a round of competition, students from Brewer High School made their way to the state Class A finals of the Maine State Drama Festival held last weekend at Falmouth High School.

The students, performing the hilarious parody 'The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged),' qualified for the competition after earning a berth at the regional round at Stearns High School in Millinocket earlier this month, where they outperformed both Bangor and Old Town high schools. And while they placed sixth overall at the state-level competition, four cast members were recognized by the judges for their individual contributions.

'We were very pleased with our performance,' said Rich Kimball, a teacher at the high school and Brewer's drama coach. 'I thought it was our best performance of the show.'
