Classroom workshops to support and elevate the study of Shakespeare’s works

Shakespeare by the Sea is proud to launch our new Page-To-Stage Shakespeare workshops for schools. Taught by Halifax's most experienced classical actors, this unique offering is designed to support and elevate study of classical plays in the classroom. Page-To-Stage participants will learn the ins and outs of putting on a classical play, from poetry and clowning to stage combat and the delicate art of a dramatic on stage death!

Shakespeare 101 is a lively, engaging introduction to Shakespeare's language and a great first step off the page and onto the stage. Covering the basics of verse, intention, and effective staging, this text-based learning opportunity can help illuminate all the good stuff that makes Shakespeare the greatest writer in the English language. Suitable for both English and Drama classes, Shakespeare 101 looks at text from A Midsummer Night's Dream. We have a version of this workshop available for grades 4-6, 7-9, and 10-12.

Language and the Play is a text and staging workshop tailored to support your class in learning about a specific Shakespeare play. It can be an engaging way to introduce the play on the syllabus, or deepen the learning after work has already begun. Using language tools to bring Shakespeare's text to life, we'll look at a major speech and a scene from the play of your choice.
