Shakespeare Storytime 11-11:50am PST
$125* per student ages 5-8
Each week kids can cozy up and hear another story of kings and queens, fairies, and tricks- a great way to introduce younger students to Shakespeare's plays. Then we will play games based off the stories that we have heard that will open up children's imagination to a whole other world.
Playwriting 12-1:25pm PST
$155* per student ages 8-12
Calling writers only! In other classes, students combine ideas to make one group play, and then perform it. In this class, kids get a real taste of the professional writer's life by writing their very own script. Each student will learn about play structure, great dialog, complex characters, and stage craft in order to create his or her own unique short script. On the final day, we will bring in professional actors to do a reading of each work so the writers can hear their words come to life.
The Sonnets 2-3:25pm PST
$155* per student ages 11+
This class is for teens ready to tackle what makes Shakespeare great: his poetry. Students will study the meter, metaphor and genius of Shakespeare’s sonnets. We will learn how to decode complex language, essential for growing actors who what to take on Shakespeare's plays in the future. Each student will be assigned a sonnet to decipher and will perform it at the end.
