Shakespeare Unbound Education Program

Shakespeare Unbound Education Program

The REP is committed to bringing quality theatre education to local schools to inspire students to explore the art of Shakespeare. The Shakespeare Unbound Program is slated to kick off in the Spring of 2016 if we are able to meet our fundraising goals.

 

  1. The REP will present four adapted productions of Shakespeare’s plays at 7 high schools in both Walton and Okaloosa County over four semesters. The goal of this program is to expose over 16,000 students and their teachers to Shakespeare’s work the way it was meant to be – experienced — live onstage. These four shows would be tailored around already existing Florida Education Standards for high schools. The four shows would be Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, Julius Caesar, and a fourth title to rotate year-to-year.
  2. After each production, teaching artists will lead workshops with the students to enhance their understanding of the language and themes of Shakespeare’s work. The REP would also offer a collaborative workshop for teachers to work with teaching artists to help come up with creative ways to help overcome obstacles they face when teaching Shakespeare.
  3. A ten-week intensive Shakespeare workshop for interested students to foster a deeper and more creative connection with Shakespeare’s work, while providing the opportunity to work in a professional theatrical atmosphere. Both invaluable opportunities for college applicants looking to showcase their creative ambitions.
