Wednesdays With Will #5 - Tragedies

Tragedies are one of the three big categories of plays that Shakespeare wrote. They're sad stories that often end in the death of many characters. Why would we want to watch something that will make us sad? Well, often, Shakespeare's tragedies teach us important lessons about life and how to be good people, even though they're sad. Once you've watched the video, send us a picture of your decorated journal, either in comments or at info@summitplayerstheatre.com, and we may feature it in an upcoming video!

Wednesdays With Will #4 - Comedies

Comedies are one of the three big categories of plays that Shakespeare wrote. They feature love, marriage, silly jesters and lots of mistaken identities. Amazingly enough, a lot of Shakespeare's humor still makes us laugh today! Follow along above to hear some Shakespearean jokes, then create your own funny story with our Midsummer mad lib. See the mad lib here, or view a downloadable, printable copy by clicking on it. Once you've watched the video, send us your completed mad lib, either in comments or at info@summitplayerstheatre.com, and we may feature it in an upcoming video!

Wednesdays With Will #3 - Histories and Family Trees

Histories are one of the three big categories of plays that Shakespeare wrote, and they're full of... well, history! Specifically, the history of England's kings and queens. Family is very important in Shakespeare's histories, because who you were related to determined your social status. Follow along above to learn more about understanding family relations through family trees, and then make your own! Here's the Plantagenet family tree we showed in the video. It's the family tree of King Henry V: Once you've watched the video, send us your family tree or family history, either in comments or at info@summitplayerstheatre.com, and we may feature them in an upcoming video!

Wednesdays With Will #2 - Stage Combat

Shakespeare's plays are chock-full of action, and bringing that action to life on stage safely requires the use of stage combat! Follow along to learn how to make your own cardboard tube sword and watch a fight from our production of Romeo and Juliet to see what new moves you can learn. Just remember the three rules of stage combat: stay safe, be alert and fight smart. Now it's your turn! Send us pictures of your completed sword or videos of your sword fight moves to info@summitplayerstheatre.com and we might feature it on our social media!
