Description:Come explore the wonderful world of Shakespeare! We will dive in feet first and come to know a single work inside and out of this most popular dramatist and poet that the Western world has ever produced. Each class member will have a role in the production to be performed at the semester’s end at the final showcase. Along the way we will learn how Shakespeare’s works summarize the range of human emotions in simple yet profoundly eloquent verse. Students will become more familiar with Shakespearean language –a complex sentence structure with the use of now-obsolete words.
Who is this class for? 8- to 12-year-olds willing to explore acting and learn to memorize lines
Cost: $ 40
Mentor(s): Janel Andersen
Mentor Bio(s): I am the wife of McKay and the mother of 6 children whose names begin with K. But being the only person in my family without a K in my name doesn’t get me down. 😉 My parents named me Janel because my three older siblings had names beginning with JA and five letters. So my name is special as well – even without a K. I also have some special pinkies. They are crooked. I have homeschooled 5 of my children for the last 6 years. I have a bachelor’s degree in English education from Utah State with a minor in journalism and an associate’s degree in journalism from Ricks College. I really love to spend time with people who make me laugh.
