401A: Tps:Shakespeare Festival

Tps:Shakespeare Festival

Based on the educational wing of Shakespeare & Company's (Lenox, MA) nationally renowned and recommended high school Shakespeare program, this course prepares DePauw students to do Shakespeare with local high school and middle school students. Part classroom activity and part in-school practicum, the course stresses the visceral, emotional, and intellectual power of experiencing Shakespeare's language physically and vocally. Culminates in a festival of Shakespeare's plays performed by local students at DePauw at the end of the semester. Repeatable for credit.
