Shakespeare Aloud Shakespeare

 

Alternate Thursdays • Fall, spring and summer • 10 a.m.-noon • Shapiro CD

September 21 • October 5, 19 • November 2, 16 • December 7

In a restructured class, we will focus on one play each semester. Outside lectures on DVD will help develop an understanding of the play and Shakespeare’s creative genius. Students will then read the play aloud, alternating parts, providing their own copy. Finally, where possible, the class will view a DVD of professional actors performing the play.

The summer session will use Zoom and will feature lectures available on DVD to explain how to better appreciate Shakespeare and spotlight themes in his plays.
