Spring Spectacle of Shakespeare at DePauw
Initially funded by a Ball Venture Grant, this program is based on a nationally recognized and awarded program started by Shakespeare & Company in Lenox, MA. It exists to bring Shakespeare into the lives of teenagers, enabling them to experience the height and breadth of Shakespeare's emotion, characters and stories through physical and tangible performance, while empowering them with Shakespeare's language. At DePauw, we train University students to work with high school and middle school students, teaching the material in a trusting and energetic environment by going into the schools every week and shepherding the students on their own turf. The younger students learn to use and trust their bodies and their voices to these demanding and rewarding plays. The program culminates in a festival of Shakespeare performances at the end of the semester in Moore Theatre in the Judson and Joyce Green Center for the Performing Arts.
This production is appropriate for all ages.
