four years of high school!"

PERFORMANCE RESIDENCIES:

During a performance residency, students participate in a full rehearsal process, scheduled in condensed form.

 

Taking on the role of performers, students are guided to experience the text from the inside: analyzing and synthesizing meaning from Shakespeare's words, considering character motive and relationships, and developing a character interpretation which they express for an audience in a rehearsed and memorized final performance.

 

Our experienced teaching artists provide guidance and insight as students go from page to stage.

THEME-BASED RESIDENCIES: 

Theme-based residencies encourage students to examine critical questions about a text through drama. 

Through a range of on-your-feet theatre games and activities, BSF teaching artists lead the ensemble to play in, around, and through the text. 

 

Designed to be lead by a single teaching artist, theme-based residencies are often a more affordable option than a Performance Based Residency.

WORKSHOPS:

HELP STUDENTS GET HANDS ON WITH SHAKESPEARE'S TEXT.

 

Short workshops are designed to help students focus on a specific area of understanding in Shakespeare's works.

 

Theses workshops may not be as physically active as our Theme-Based or Performance-Based Residencies, so if space, noise, or time are a concern for your classroom, this is a great way to bring some excitement to your Shakespeare unit!
