“We are such stuff as dreams are made on”
(Prospero, Act 4 Scene 1)
A storm, a shipwreck, a magician, a sprite, a wildman and more fill the pages of William Shakespeare’s enchanting play, The Tempest. In this class, students will perform excerpts from this play, using their whole selves to connect with each other, literature and history in a meaningful and impactful way. We will embrace Shakespeare's language with passion and joy in a positive, nurturing environment! Through improvisational games and rehearsing with a script, their confidence with being onstage, handling Shakespearean text and ability to collaborate will grow. On the final day of the semester, students will perform for their peers and parents live via Zoom!
