Join us for a fun and exciting program of rehearsing and performing an edit of one of Shakespeare’s most popular plays. Our script is edited from the original text keeping the Elizabethan English. Through physical and theatrical exercises, students will learn how to create and develop a character, understand Shakespeare and use their voices and bodies to tell this great story. We’ll bring it all together as we prepare for an end-of-year performance in Newbury Park in late March. This class is a safe and supportive atmosphere where students are encouraged to make bold acting choices while learning teamwork and gaining confidence. All students will get a speaking role involving lines s range in size (small, medium and large) and will be cast in consideration of class size, production needs and student preference. Plays under consideration: Romeo and Juliet, The Winter's Tale, Cymbeline, The Tempest, Twelfth Night, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Love's Labour's Lost and King Lear.
