11 am to 2 pm
Attention high school students! Come to the Newberry for an exciting, immersive three-hour workshop, and learn how to make Shakespeare come alive in your performances. Facilitated by actors Peter Garino, Corliss Preston, and Michelle Shupe from the Shakespeare Project of Chicago, you will learn tools and techniques for unlocking emotion and meaning in Shakespeare’s texts.
Participants will put their newly learned techniques into practice with a reading from John Gielgud’s 1951 radio adaptation of Hamlet, drawn from a hand-annotated copy in the Newberry collection.
No experience required! Lunch will be provided—and it’s all FREE.
