ABOUT THE GLOBAL FILM SERIES
How do the films make use of Shakespeare’s plays to speak to questions of gender, race, religion, sexuality, and political power in the social and historical contexts they depict? And What do different cross-cultural adaptations reveal about specific societies and their values?
This global film series will illuminate these essential questions through our monthly screenings of film adaptations of Shakespeare’s plays from all around the world. The film series came to life when Ms. Figueroa and Mr. Margraf started developing a curriculum for the Shakespeare and Cinema course. It is our hope that the Milton community will come together and share in our love for the Bard’s ever relevant works.
COMING SOON TO GREELEY (AUDITORIUM) THEATRE…
10 Things I Hate about You!

in Greeley Auditorium
An adaptation of William Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, the movie begins with Cameron, new student at Padua High, sitting in the office of the quirky guidance counselor Ms. Perky. He is then shown around the school by Michael, who will become his best friend. During his tour is when Cameron first sees Bianca Stratford, a beautiful sophomore with one problem: she isn’t allowed to date. And neither is her shrewish sister, Katarina, a senior who loves indie rock and feminist prose and hates conformity. But Kat and Bianca’s father has a stern rule: Bianca can date… as long as Kat has a date, too!!!
