This interactive workshop aims to give participants the most direct experience of Shakespeare’s language by inviting them to read it aloud. We will tackle one act of the play at each of five sessions. No preparation or prior familiarity is required. An optional sixth session will be a trip to see the Commonwealth Shakespeare Company’s free performance on Boston Common.
Dates are: Tuesdays, June 27, July 11, 18, 25, and August 1.
To ensure that everyone can participate actively, places in the program are limited to 15 students per session.
Please register below to reserve your space.
Also, PLEASE bring a copy of the play to each session.
The program is led by Marianna Krejci-Papa and David Smith.
Marianna taught college English courses for the U.S. Army with the University of Maryland, European Division, prior to making the Boston area her home. She is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Language, Theater, and Communication Arts at Eastern Nazarene College in Quincy. Shakespeare is one of her favorite courses to teach, and Reader’s Theater is her favorite approach.
David Smith taught English for 50 years, the last 34 of them at Milton Academy, where courses on Shakespeare and on Hamlet were part of his repertoire.
