Preshow Seminar


Unlike other theatrical field trips, Shakespearience expands far beyond the actual performance at the Alex Theatre. In addition to the live performance and the study materials, our program features an online preshow seminar for use before the show!

Our online seminar is structured to give the students a closer look at William Shakespeare and his work while providing a “backstage” peek at the magic of theatre!

Approximately 50 minutes in length, the preshow seminar provides an interactive summary of the scenes featured in the actual performance. For more background on Shakespeare’s life and the Elizabethan world in which he lived, be sure to check out our Study Materials!

Best of all, because the video can be shown at any time in the classroom, our online preshow seminar is the perfect solution for those teachers who need more flexibility when planning out their lessons!
