Shakespeare Play in a Day
May 20, June 3, July 8
"Shall we their fond pageant see?
Lord, what fools these mortals be!”
Come create our own fond pageant in
A Midsummer Nights Dream: Play in a Day!
Saturday, May 20, 10-6pm, $85
ages 10-90+, registration required
From puppetry to mask-work, improvisation and creative movement, we will work our magic and create a short Shakespearean performance in one single day!
We begin with a basic intro to Shakespeare (from insults to compliments to sonnets and battles) and then create our own mechanicals and faeries on our way to building our own Shakespeare.
Pack a lunch, we’ll have snacks on hand, and we’ll work from 10am-4:30pm. We’ll take a short dinner break (on your own) from 4:30-5:15 and then your stage call is 5:15pm with a performance for friends and family at 5:30pm!
What fools these mortals be!
Make sure to save the dates for our Macbeth: Play in a Day (June 3) and Hamlet: Play in a Day (July 8).
