Performing Shakespeare     

 

 

 

Theatre III and Theatre IV students spent three weeks learning the difficulties of performing William Shakespeare's plays in a historical fashion.  According to Elizabethan theatre styles, students performed "in the round" with audience members watching them from every angle.  Staying true to tradition, there were no set pieces...only costumes and the power of language to bring their worlds to life.  Students performed selected scenes from Shakespeare's plays for Mrs. Fields' 9th grade English class.
