Shakespeare Mosh Pit 1.0

has been invigorated with new plays!

Still in the same fun and imaginative format, we'll explore the magic of THE TEMPEST, the villains in OTHELLO, the comedy of AS YOU LIKE IT and the tragedy of HAMLET.

No previous drama classes or Shakespeare experience is necessary.

Participants should be enthusiastic, have confidence in public speaking and be comfortable working in small groups.

Participants aged 9 to 13 years go on an imaginative one week journey through some of Shakespeare’s most fun and celebrated plays. Through drama games, story-telling, improvisation, script writing, movement and song, participants will develop skills in acting, writing, communication, interpretation and self evaluation. Young Bards will have the opportunity to experience Shakespeare’s language, interpret characters and recreate the stories in their own words. Following the Victorian Essential Learning Standards for Primary and Early Secondary students, this week of classes provides a memorable and upbeat introduction to Shakespeare.
