Acting Shakespeare in Elizabethan English (Age 8-12)
Shakespeare is a master in language and using words and his plays are like poetry. Come and
immerse in beautiful language and develop a love of words.
In this course, students will engage with Shakespeare’s text in the English of that time, learn the
meaning of the text and then demonstrate their understanding of their words through
performing short extracts of the plays.
Students will learn to:
• Demonstrate understanding of Shakespearean English
• Respond to the form and rhythm of the speech
• Vary volume, pace and pause to increase dramatic effect
• Perform with body language and facial expression
Parents are invited to the last day of class for a showing of the students’ work.
