Fun, Sun, and Shakespeare (grades 6-12) Instructor: Michaela Gorman - Fee - $650 ($700 after April 15)
Ever decided to “lie low”? Wanted to “vanish into thin air”? Had “too much of a good thing”? Been “hoodwinked” or found yourself “in a pickle”? Wished someone “good riddance” or “sent them packing”? Found yourself “tongue-tied”? Then you’ve been quoting Shakespeare! Even though Shakespeare’s plays were first performed more than 400 years ago, his words are still alive and vibrant. Productions of Shakespeare’s work still happen every day, just as resonant, goofy, and exciting as they were four centuries ago. Shakespeare doesn’t belong on the shelf, he belongs on stage, in the park, on your must-see list. Shakespeare shouldn’t be boring; in fact, he’d hate that! The goal of this weeklong Shakespeare workshop, at its core, is to have fun with Shakespeare. Students will have the opportunity to develop their acting skills and to discover how accessible the Bard really is with games and activities. Exercises and staging will take place outdoors, and the program will culminate in a public performance of one of Shakespeare’s comedies on the Sacred Heart campus. Please join us for a week of fun, friends, and iambic pentameter!
