Shakespeare is widely regarded as one of the best writers of all time in the English Language.
The works of Shakespeare are often required reading in secondary schools. Come and discover
the fun of Shakespeare and be better prepared for it in English class.
In this course, students will be introduced to the stories of Shakespeare and to bring
Shakespeare’s stories to life through rehearsed reading. Through adding vocal and physical
