Shakespeare in ACTion is the annual in-school offering for 5th to 8th grade. Superficially silly and rambunctious, the play is actually a very successful way to introduce the Bard to first time viewers and to prepare them for reading him in class and working on scenes with your Teaching Artists. The 40 minute play also follows the classical play structure of rising action, conflict, climax, resolution, which we use as the basis of our playwriting curriculum for the 6th grade. For the 8th grade, the play introduces/reinforces that each character has an objective, encounters obstacles, and strategizes to overcome them.
