Shakespeare Then and Now
If you are home in August, spend it doing what you love with friends!
Could Shakespeare have written rap songs? Create your own modern take on Shakespeare’s works! In this fun, challenging class, you'll unlock the secrets of one of the world's greatest writers as you bring them into the 21st Century! Start with a real blast from the past, learning by performing in some of Shakespeare's most iconic scenes. Then you'll rewrite them in contemporary language to perform again. What would you do to Romeo and Juliet’s balcony scene? For another fun challenge, perform a monologue in it’s original version, then using your talents, turn it into a rap! Shakespeare costumes will be safely delivered to you. For your contemporary scene and rap, you get to choose your own look from your closet. Your final, edited performance will be shown on our private YouTube Channel that can be streamed to your TV! Your friends and relatives anywhere in the world can see your show! What’s past is prologue...to what you create!
