Fairytale Town’s Education and Theatre Arts Specialist, John Lee, comes to your classroom to give your students a fast, fun and high-energy introduction to live theatre and the works of William Shakespeare. Tailored to suit individual classroom needs, each workshop includes an energetic lecture on the history of Shakespeare’s stage, life and times, drawing on lessons from his popular works including: As You Like It, Hamlet, Julius Caesar, Macbeth, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Romeo and Juliet and more. The following workshops can be customized and adapted to meet your classroom needs:

A Midsummer Night’s Dream: Fairies & Fools! (6th – 12th Grade)

Explore how not to put on a play as your students take on the roles of Shakespeare’s classic clowns. This includes a lively introduction to Bottom, the Mechanicals and their misguided theatrics, sabotaged by Puck and his mischievous magic. The workshop culminates in an unintentionally hysterical performance of Pyramus & Thisbe.

Hamlet/Stage Combat Workshop (9th – 12th Grade)

Pre-selected students will be guided, as a director leads actors, through the physical blocking of the final scene of Hamlet, including stage combat. This is a big, loud, ranging, high-energy workshop that requires a large bare stage or open area, preferably indoors.

Romeo & Juliet (6th – 12th Grade)

The famous balcony scene will be unlocked and translated line by line in this workshop. Variations of this workshop will explore the five scenes that Romeo and Juliet appear in together, including the dance, balcony, marriage, morning and tomb scenes.

Please Note: Classroom visits are only available within a 25 mile radius of Fairytale Town and are scheduled upon availability.
