The Magic of Shakespeare - Digital Workshop
Shakespeare included a lot of magic in his plays. Witches, wizards, fairies and others play pranks, make mischief and even cause characters to fall in love!
Summit Maura, Summit Ben and Summit Emily are ready to introduce you to Shakespeare's magic. In this interactive, digital workshop, you'll embody some of the magical beings in Shakespeare's plays, take a walk to notice some of the magic in the natural world around you and act out a scene of magical mischief from one of Shakespeare's most enchanting comedies.
If you want to act along with our final workshop exercise, you can find the script below! Click the text to open a downloadable version you can print and bring outside with you as you become a real Shakespearean actor:
After you've finished staging your scene, send us a video to firstname.lastname@example.org or any of our social media pages! We can't wait to see your acting skills in action.
Summit Players Theatre recommends dedicating at least 45 minutes for completing this workshop. Participants are suggested to clear a large space in their homes or take their devices outside to have room to follow along with the acting portions of the workshop.
