Young Shakespeare

Feb 1—May 31, 2014

An engaging, accessible Shakespeare program for elementary-age students

Part of Education

This new program introduces elementary and middle-school students to the Bard by performing in their own abbreviated version of a Shakespeare play. Led by our experienced teaching artists, students explore character study, scene work, and theater exercises. The program culminates with a student performance at BAM for fellow participants.

Space is limited and priority is given to teachers who also take advantage of our Shakespeare Teaches Teachers professional development program.

This program consists of twelve 45 minute in-school workshops plus final student performance at BAM.

Appropriate for grades 4—8.
