GCT class spends May 4 performing Star Wars scenes

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) -

 

The works of William Shakespeare visited a galaxy far, far away Monday.

Students at Greene County Tech Junior High have been studying the tragedy "Romeo and Juliet."

English teacher John Baldwin decided to have students perform scenes from "The Empire Striketh Back" for so-called May the 4th Be With You Day.

“If you could be Darth Vader, maybe you'd raise your hand,” Baldwin said about getting students involved.

This fun day inspired students to step up and volunteer for the Rebel Force.

“I have students who would normally not volunteer to read aloud and when they found out they could be their favorite Star Wars character they went crazy,” Baldwin said.

Baldwin had 130 students participate in the day.
