Before the star-crossed lovers of ROMEO & JULIET meet at the Capulets’ soiree, they are more or less typical teenagers. We get to hear all about lovesick Romeo’s infatuation with the mysterious Rosaline. But what is Juliet thinking about as she's on the verge of being married off to Paris?

We've created a text adventure game based on George Orwell’s 1984!

Report for your shift at the Ministry of Truth where you’ll spend your workday rectifying “misprints” in newspaper articles to properly reflect the Party’s ever changing version of history and language. But be careful, Big Brother is always watching.

Students from the DC area and beyond submitted their masterpieces to the iShakespeare Video Contest. Entries were judged on use of text, creativity, and production value.

Thank you to all of our participants!

And the first place winner is…

In an incredible feat of animation that will certainly have studios calling:
