Acting Shakespeare: Julius Caesar

“Not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved Rome more.”
(Brutus, Act 3 Scene 2)

Join us in Ancient Rome, where Caesar is warned by a stranger that he should, “Beware the Ides {15th} of March.” Does he follow this alarming advice? 
In this class, students will perform excerpts from Shakespeare’s powerful tragedy, Julius Caesar. 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 live via Zoom!
