MT Shakes! at Bench Elementary
The 2023 offering from MONTANA SHAKES! is a K-6 an original interactive play called HAMLET SANDWICH, written by Matt Foss.
In Hamlet Sandwich three scientists are on a mission searching for creative geniuses. Luckily, elementary school students are some of the most creatively genius folks you can find!
Together, the scientists and geniuses must complete a creative
task: they must put on a performance of Hamlet using weird stuff, and mess around with it to help everyone talk about what they are feeling. With this mission in mind, the trio set off with the audience to become – as Hamlet says – kings (and queens) of infinite space!
Montana Shakes! programming features a 45-minute performance of accessible Shakespeare followed by a 10 to 15 minutequestion and answer and various 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.
Montana Shakes! brings interactive, original plays to sixty elementary schools across MT and WY each spring.
