Class Experience: In this class we will explore the story of the marvelous, magical fairies in William Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream."

Class outline: Introduction: Quick icebreaker game to get to know each other and introduce the play. Movement warm-up: "Over hill, over dale" -- the fairies...
Students will have fun and use their imaginations as they learn about characters in one of Shakespeare's most popular plays, and gain some basic acting and design skills.
I have enjoyed teaching Shakespeare classes for this age group for over 20 years. The stories, language and characters are fascinating to people of ALL ages, and it is my experience that this particular age group is fascinated by the fairy characters in particular. I have directed students in abridged versions of the following Shakespeare plays: Macbeth, Twelfth Night, The Tempest, Romeo and Juliet, and Midsummer Night's Dream. As an actor, I have enjoyed playing characters in Midsummer Night's Dream, Othello, Julius Caesar and King Lear.
Please have paper and pencils, crayons or markers standing by for the creative drawing activity.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
