New Orleans teen performs at the 35th Annual National Shakespeare Competition

April 23 may have been a normal Monday for most high school students, but for Rohan Padmakumar from Lusher Charter School it will be a day to remember forever. Rohan, child of Ambika Prasad and student of Beau Bratcher, placed as a finalist at the 35th Annual National Shakespeare Competition on William Shakespeare's birthday while competing against 55 students from around the US on stage at the Mitzi Newhouse Theater in Lincoln Center as the culmination of a year-long competition hosted by the English-Speaking Union (ESU).

Prior to arriving in New York City for the competition, Rohan wrote

Shakespeare is, simply put, a genius. He is responsible for coining phrases that we use every day and writing works that made tremendous strides in the field of literature and the art form of theater. In NYC, I look forward to presenting his work to the best of my ability while at the same time interacting with like minded people my age.

To qualify for the National Shakespeare Competition finals, Rohan won the regional ESU New Orleans Branch Shakespeare Competition on March 4, 2018.
