390A: Tps:Spring Shakespeare Festival
This course trains DePauw students to direct local high and middle school students in the mounting of fully staged 75-minute Shakespeare plays. Students spend the first three weeks in the classroom learning best practice techniques for teaching Shakespeare and working with youth. The remainder of the semester is spent in the participating Putnam County schools shaping a production while also delivering the intellectual and emotional benefits that can be acquired by physically and vocally experiencing Shakespeare's language. This course culminates in a day-long festival at DePauw University's Moore Theatre (Green Center) comprised of performances of each participating school's play. DePauw's Shakespeare in the Schools program is inspired by and produced in association with Shakespeare & Company in Lenox, MA. The course requires a M/W/F 2:30-5:00 commitment to accommodate transportation and in-school rehearsal. It is repeatable for credit under different prefixes. See instructor for details and required SPAC.
