Class Experience

Learners will learn an overview of Shakespeare's life and theatre during the Elizabethan era. They will also learn and practice the skills needed to bring a theatre show from the script to the stage. 
I am a youth theatre director experienced in helping youth bring plays to life. I also hold a degree in English Literature and Theatre from the University of British Columbia. During my degree, I took many courses on theatre and literature in the Elizabethan era and on Shakespeare in particular. 
Learners may need to spend some time outside of class rehearsing their script. 
Learners will need paper, a pencil and an eraser. They will also need to gather costumes and props from around their homes for use during the performance. The camp script will be provided a few days prior to the beginning of camp.
Learners will receive a personalized certificate recognizing one of their strengths at the end of the camp week. They will also receive oral feedback designed to enhance their performance throughout the camp week. 
10 hours per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
A condensed and youth-friendly version of A Midsummer Night's Dream will be used in camp. 
A youth-friendly, condensed and royalty free version of A Midsummer Night's Dream will be used as the camp script. The specific script will be chosen closer to the beginning of camp, so that it will fit well with the learners in the camp. 

Information about Shakespeare and Elizabethan theatre will be inspired by the following sources. It will also be informed by university courses that I have completed about Shakespeare, such as courses by Katherine Sirluck at the University of British Columbia. 
- Multiculturalism in Shakespeare's Plays
- Invisible But Influential: Women and the Theatre in Shakespeare's Time
- Elizabethan Theatre
- Globe Theatre
- Shakespeare's Life
- How to Dress Like an Elizabethan Actor
- A Midsummer Night's Dream Gender Diversity
- A Midsummer Night's Dream: Gender, Sexism and Inequality
- The Elizabethan Stage
