Montana Shakes! brings an interactive original play featuring scenes from Shakespeare to sixty elementary schools each spring. The play is accompanied by exciting theatrical workshops and introduces Shakespeare to young people in a way that is based on engagement and not apprehension.
The 2021 offering from MONTANA SHAKES! is a virtual K-6 friendly adaptation of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Montana Shakes! virtual programming features four different theatrical workshops making for a fun-filled day for students K-6 that also meets many of Montana's Common Core Standards in English Language Arts and Literacy. Call now to reserve a spot for your school or organization.
Students will work in pairs for this workshop.
Students will investigate the fight scene between the young people in Midsummer and, time permitting, rehearse in pairs or foursomes.
Students will be working on “Pyramus and Thisbe”, the very silly play-within-the-play of Midsummer.
