Shakespeare All Day

Description

In addition to their provocative performances, the Shakespeare Theatre of NJ also conducts engaging workshops that get students on their feet to perform Shakespeare’s text.  While the performances engage, educate, and enlighten, the workshops make the experience more personal. Together, they transform Shakespeare from merely words in “some old book” to a fun, easily understood and accessible “play.”

This exciting day with the Bard includes one performance of a Shakespeare Theatre touring production and up to five workshops. Each workshop is run by members of the Shakespeare Theatre’s touring company and/or the Shakespeare Theatre’s artist-educators.  Each workshop can accommodate up to 30 students.  Many schools schedule simultaneous workshops in multiple classrooms to accommodate more students.

Students actively incorporate cognitive learning, analysis and extrapolation, phonics, and advanced reading and interpretive skills, while also exploring imagery, allusion, and metaphor, as well as other required subjects in the Common Core Standards.
