390A: Tps:Shakespeare Festival
This course trains DePauw students to direct local middle and high school students in the mounting of fully staged 75-minute cutting of a Shakespeare play. Students spend the first four weeks in the classroom learning best practice techniques for directing a play, teaching Shakespeare, and working with youth. The remainder of the semester is spent at a participating Putnam County school leading the participants in creating their Shakespeare production while also delivering the physical, emotional and intellectual benefits that can be acquired through the experience of enacting Shakespeare's language. This course culminates in the Spring Spectacle of Shakespeare, 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 rehearsals. It is repeatable for credit under different prefixes. See instructor for details and required SPAC.
