Comedy & Shakespeare Workshop (16+)
In the gardens of
Raadhuis De Paauw, Wassenaar
Friday 9 September 11:00 - 14:00
Illyria is back this year to help students get to grips with Shakespeare in an interactive workshop! This can be booked by schools now.
In its sixth season, this year’s workshop is based around the performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream by a theatre company from Great Britain.
School groups are invited to practice theatre activities with the company actors, in a session which is moderated by Emmeline Prior: a British actress, Emmeline also worked with Shakespeare's Globe theatre as well as Illyria in the past. The workshop follows a theme and this year, this is COMEDY.
Fun and new ideas!
Schools from all around the region participate. It is a great chance for students to mingle and for teachers to get new ideas. A highlight for STET as a show and production, this is an event that pleases everybody. Why wouldn't you want to see a live Shakespeare show and join theatre activities in the beautiful grounds of De Paauw?!
Shakespearean comedy is the fast-paced, witty banter we see in all of his comedic plays: clever dialogue and play on words, often delivered in a dramatic manner. We will discuss and practice disguises and mistaken identities, tangled plots and surprising interludes.
