Essentially a "play within a play", this amazing field trip follows the adventures of an acting troupe as they stage a series of scenes from Shakespeare's most famous plays!
Because the show was designed to meet the curricular needs of the teacher, each of the scenes are from plays widely considered “required reading” when teaching Shakespeare.
During the 90 minute performance, your students will have a chance to see scenes from Romeo and Juliet, The Taming of the Shrew, The Tragedy of Macbeth, The Tragedy of Hamlet and A Midsummer Night's Dream.
Furthermore, the format of the show smoothly integrates all of the scenes into a single cohesive performance.
The show also includes an extensive set of study materials to aid teachers in preparing the students (including lesson plans, summary handouts, worksheets and assessments) as well as an online preshow seminar to help supplement the performance!
Teachers can even request a useful field trip guide to help plan their visit to the Alex Theatre!
If your goal is to generate excitement in students for Shakespeare - you are a success! Our students can’t stop talking about 'their favorite scenes.' We had parents call to tell us about the enthusiasm their children had when they returned home. See you next year!
