William Shakespeare is considered to be the world’s greatest dramatist. His Tragedies, Comedies and Histories are full of kings, queens, fairies, tricks and are SO MUCH FUN!! We have been offering Shakespeare Performance Programs for children as young as 4 for over 22 years. We make Shakespeare accessible and inclusive. In this program, we will learn, discuss and explore many of his 36 plays. THEN, using fun active theatre exercises we will PHYSICALLY explore these great stories, characters and themes. This program provides a safe, fun and supportive atmosphere where students will be encouraged to make bold and creative acting choices, while also developing new levels of personal confidence, finding their voice and ensemble skills while learning this great story. We’ll bring it all together as we prepare for a short presentation of some of his characters and scenes during our last class for friends and family.
