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 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.

Download a PDF flyer for this program to post and distribute, and explore the Newberry’s early editions of Shakespeare.

Cosponsored with the English-Speaking Union Chicago Branch, and supported by a grant from the Chicago Free for All Fund at the Chicago Community Trust.

Your generosity is vital in keeping the library’s programs, exhibitions, and reading rooms free and accessible to everyone. Make a donation today.
