In this class, students will perform excerpts from one of Shakespeare’s comedies, Much Ado About Nothing. They will learn about Shakespeare’s life and theatre as well as what goes into staging a play, including theatre vocabulary and design elements (costume, hair & make-up, props, scene, sound, and lighting). 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 scenes for their peers and parents. Students will need to memorize their lines outside of class time (around 15 minutes a week). Students must be emerging readers to enroll.
