ACT I: Shakespeare's early plays are explored with weekly study guides and activity workbook pages building a strong foundation and preparation for the Spring outdoor classes of rehearsal toward the performance of scenes and monologues from the plays studied.
PART I: Homestudy- Every week we will send you another play with a study guide (or you can pick it up at a live class), and activities that connect to the story, language, characters, Shakespeare's life, and the historical context of the plays. Included in activities are crafts and ideas of how to play out the story at home. This is flexible - do as much or little as you care to. The goal is that you get to know these plays.
Live or Virtual Class: You will be invited to participate in several "check-in" meetings live or via zoom, depending on what you are comfortable with. These will be 30-45 minutes and are optional. It's an opportunity to ask questions, and share work.
PART II: In-Person Rehearsal Classes- Study continues live and in person at The Little Globe Theatre and The Tiring House School Room. Acting training, rehearsal, and performance are the focus using scenes and monologues from the 8 plays being studied. On Saturday, April 23rd* the Homeschooling Class and the Saturday Shakespeare Class will present their work for the Bard Birthday Bash (Shakespeare's Birthday!) Celebration!
Curriculum Connections: Classic Literature and Plays, Deep reading and comprehension, Theatre History, and Public Speaking.
