Shakespeare for Kids

In this class, students will perform excerpts from one of Shakespeare’s comedies, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. 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 (not fear) 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. Students will need to memorize their lines outside of class time (around 15 minutes a week).
Ages: 5+yo.
