Shakespeare Stories and Greek Myth

by Freddy Carnes, Artistic Associate

This week I started a workshop for Theatre Action Project as part of World Tales and Tunes called Shakespeare Stories and Greek Myth.  This is a hybrid of storytelling and an acting class with costumes and props.

Stepping Stone School requested an interactive two-hour class for children 5-12 years old that would include famous Shakespeare stories and Greek Myth, so I combined acting classes that I have taught with the stories that I have told and added costumes and props and a backdrop.

This week I have already gone to three different Stepping Stone Schools and done 6 of these two-hour performances with 150 children.  I have gotten such good feedback from the children, teachers and directors that we have already discussed expanding the workshop to the school year!

Thank you Shakespeare and Homer for giving our children such a great gift!
