Shakespeare Interactive Workshops
By Emily Mattina
||$1000 / 5 sessions / 1 day
||45 minutes / session
Shakesperience’s signature series of in-class Shakespeare workshops is designed
with several versions for various age and experience levels. Two actors
demonstrate a honed teaching style to make the text accessible to all students.
They lead the class through Shakespeare's language and times, literary devices,
and universally themed scenes featuring student performers.
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. Rather than condescending to the students, Shakesperience
invites them to rise to the level of the language.
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, social studies, and theatre learning standards. A study
guide with pre- and post-show activities accompanies the program.
"Terrific! That was just terrific!
They all had so much fun. I can't believe that you got the eighth
graders laughing...but you wrapped them right in!"
