Shakesperience Productions' signature series of in-class workshops on folklore is designed for various age and experience levels. Shakesperience’s signature series of in-class Folklore workshops is designed to educate students on Fables, Folktales and Myths from various cultures.  Two actors demonstrate a honed teaching style to bring modern adaptations of these classic tales.  They lead the class in scenes featuring student performers.  The newly revised workshop now includes an environmental theme, highlighted in the scenes, including The Fox and the Crow, The Rabbit and the Turnip, Dola and Babi, The Shark King, Hercules and The Stables of Augeaus, and The Maneki Neko (The Lucky Cat).

This small group access to the Shakesperience Teaching Approach, and the balance of workshop and performance, allow for the highest levels of inclusiveness. This unique format permits the celebration of the spoken language and empowers students with confidence and public speaking skills.
The cost of the program brings our artists to your school for five, 45 minute workshops, all incorporated into the school's schedule. Each session is presented with substantial ties to language arts and theatre learning standards.


Testimonial

"I liked learning the story of 'Pandora' because it's important to know that hope is still out there in the world today. With all the bad that happens, it's good to know that hope is still out there."
 - 8th grade student, The Blessed St. Paul II School, Middletown, CT
