Shakespeare Aloud Shakespeare


Alternate Thursdays • 10 a.m.-noon • Room 9

June 6, 20 • July (4 no class), 18 • August 1

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 feature lectures available on DVD to explain how to better appreciate Shakespeare and spotlight themes in his plays. This summer will feature the John Barton tapes (director of the Royal Shakespeare Theater) on “Playing Shakespeare” which is about understanding the text in order to perform it.

Coordinators: Sandra Wodicka and Barbara Unsworth
