“SHAKESPEARE AND THE LANGUAGE THAT SHAPED A WORLD”
A whirlwind tour through the life, times, and works of William Shakespeare, led by six actors equipped with six stools, a couple of broadswords, a bit of historical information and scenes from many of his greatest plays. This energetic, fast-paced peek into Shakespeare’s world and Elizabethan life was created by Kevin G. Coleman, Director of Education at Shakespeare & Company. It is a fun, accessible introduction to Shakespeare with enough depth to please students who have already studied his works. This 45 minute presentation comes with accompanying workshops in performance.
This 45 minute workshop is about having fun and discovering the playfulness of acting. Our teaching artists work closely with a group of students to unleash an exciting, immediate, and personal experience of Shakespeare's language. In this workshop, each student can succeed and discover that Shakespeare is accessible and immediately engaging. This workshop can accommodate up to 40 students.
