Gearing up for A Midsummer Night’s Dream

The after-school Shakespeare Club welcomed 3 actors from Cincinnati’s Shakespeare Company to lead a workshop for them. The actors prepared activities to help student practice getting into character for their spring production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. They “workshopped” being rude mechanicals, fairies and Athenians. The students also have been doing table reads of different parts, trying to find which character types fit them best. After the winter break, the group will start settling in to their roles and will make final decisions on whether to go with a more modern or Shakespearean version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream this spring.
