New Pond Farm's Summer Shakespeare Program

*The event has already taken place on this date: Fri, 07/12/2019
Get ready for songs, shipwrecks, and sword fights in Shakespeare’s famous comedy of mistaken identity, practical jokes, re-united siblings, and unrequited love.

This engaging three-week theatre program for actors entering grades 7 - 11 with director Nancy Ponturo will incorporate acting, movement, and voice. Students will become more familiar with the intricacies of the Shakespearean language, garner a sound knowledge of the text, and get a glimpse into life in Elizabethan times as they prepare for their performances. We aim to stimulate their imaginations through an innovative and fun approach to classical material.
