CLASS DESCRIPTION AND REGISTRATION

By taking the most famous scenes and monologues from the canon of Shakespearean works and presenting them in a contemporary style, new and often remarkable interpretations of the classic materials emerge. We see the balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet as a late-night phone call, the witches from Macbeth as bag ladies, the wooing scene from The Taming of the Shrew as a wrestling bout, the confrontation between Harry and Hotspur from Henry IV done in ritualistic fighting mode, and Marc Antony's speech from Julius Caesar as a press conference. Add to that energetic portrayals of a handful of the most recognizable Shakespearean soliloquies penned and you have a wonderful way to introduce young actors and audiences to the fantastic world of Elizabethan literature.

Middle and high school students in this classroom-based play will use this creative script to have fun learning Shakespeare, as well as about all aspects of putting together a show. They will take on every role, both on-stage and off, learning acting, voice, articulation, movement, and stage presence, all in the context of learning lines, playing roles, and preparing for performance. The semester will end in a staged show for friends and family!
