THEA 10.22 Shakespeare in the Schools

This course is a team process approach that offers students the challenges and pleasures of working with fifth and sixth grade children while teaching, directing, and producing a Shakespeare play. The method of instruction is based upon the model for Shakespeare-in-Education developed by Shakespeare and Company of Lenox, Massachusetts.

Regular initial weekly meetings with the instructor will serve as preparation for an on site weekly residency at Northern Stage, White River Junction, VT. Student mentoring teams will be instructed in an approach to introduce Shakespeare’s world and the world of the play, and to guide children through a process of rehearsal, and ultimately, performance of an abridged 45-minute adaptation of a Shakespeare’s A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM.

The class will culminate in an end-of-term invited performance at Northern Stage Theater in White River Junction for students, parents and the public.

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
