All the world’s a stage, Shakespeare said, and soon Baldwin’s own poets will have a stage to share their work.

The stage crew is holding a poetry night on May 25 for all high school students.

Sophomore crew members Hannah Kadrie and Tori Brain are the lead organizers of the event. They were inspired by their own interest in poetry, and hope that others will be interested as well.

“We were watching poetry videos one night and thought it would be cool to try an open poetry night at the high school,” Kadrie said.

The girls figured it would be easy to organize, considering their extensive involvement with auditorium events.

The night will provide an opportunity for poetry fans to read their own work and listen to others’ poems.

In addition to the live readings, poetry projects from some sophomore English classes will be displayed in the lobby outside the auditorium. Refreshments will be provided as well.

The girls already have a number of poetry submissions and hope for many more leading up to the event.

“If you like expressing yourself and want to come, that’s great,” Kadrie said.
