My character, by Deirdre
Shakespeare is important because in the Tempest Tossed he comes out and introduces the play. At the end of the play he also comes out and makes a speech. Shakespeare is a great part to have because I think he is a fantastic writer and he wrote "The Tempest". Shakespeare lived around the 1600's and he is still famous today for his writing. I think I am pretty lucky to have this part in the play.
There are oodles of Shakespeare sites on the web, but here a few we found useful.
