Acting Shakespeare: Henry V

“We few, we happy few, we band of brothers.”

(King Henry, Act 4 Scene 3)

Join this band of brothers with Henry as he tries to win battles against all odds! In this class, students will perform excerpts from Shakespeare’s powerful history play, Henry V. They will use their whole selves to connect with each other, literature and history in a meaningful and impactful way. Students will learn about Shakespeare’s life and theatre as well as what goes into staging a play, including theatre vocabulary and design elements. We will embrace Shakespeare’s language with passion and joy in a positive, nurturing environment! Through improvisational games and rehearsing with a script, their confidence with being onstage, handling Shakespearean text and ability to collaborate will grow. On the final day of the semester, students will perform for their peers and parents via Zoom!
