Shakespeare

Shakespeare at Takoma EC
[Feb/Mar – 2011] Shakespeare lives at Takoma EC! With dynamic live performances and workshops, Educational Theatre Company’s (ETC) professional actors share their love of theatre and Shakespeare with Takoma’s students in grades 5-8. Following a lively and entertaining performance of scenes from A Midsummer Night’s Dream, ETC actors conducted individual workshops with each class. Students learn to explore the text’s vocal, physical, mental and emotional challenges in support of basic skills. Workshops included physical and vocal characterization, analysis of script and improvisation, and stage combat. Sponsored by Takoma Theatre Conservancy in partnership with Class Acts Arts.
