Romeo & Juliet
Schools may book a pre-show workshop at their school in advance of attending our performances. This workshop is co-led by a CSC Teaching Artist and an actor from the cast of Julius Caesar. These workshops are intended as enrichment for schools planning to attend the performance.
Interested in preparing your students to view our show, bridging the gaps between reader, audience member, and performer? Learn more about the play from an actor's perspective and how artists bring Shakespeare's words to life. We'll explore the characters' vibrancy and immediacy in the context of students' modern experiences. Loyalty, honor and the identity of a nation are at stake when a clairvoyant warning, secret meetings and deadly conspiracies collide. This pre-show workshop will bring students inside the action as they explore these themes, examine character motivations and ultimately choose a side to support. Drawing on our recent election, students will develop authenticate connections to the Shakespearean text and come away with a deeper understanding of the politics of Shakespeare and the USA.
"Thank you all for everything each of you did to make this incredible opportunity available to our students...As a class, they've had their fair share of challenges, but as [the CSC teaching artists] can attest, the students confidently point to our work with Midsummer as one of the most enjoyable and transformative experiences of the year." -Eric Schildge, Boston Collegiate Charter School teacher on in-class residency with CSC.
