FALL FESTIVAL OF SHAKESPEARE: CHICAGO
PRESENTS DUNDEE-CROWN HIGH SCHOOL AS YOU LIKE IT
December 13th & 14th 2013
CHICAGO/CARPENTERSVILLE (November 9th 2013) - Two Pence Theatre Co. in residence at Dundee-Crown High School & Pablo-Casals Elementary School present Shakespeare’s As You Like It December 13th at 7pm & 14th at 3pm and 7pm. For 10 weeks DCHS students have teamed with Two Pence Teaching Artists in acting, directing, stage-managing and designing Shakespeare's hilarious forest comedy. All performances are open to the public. $10 General Admission $7 Seniors/Students/ $5 Children under 10.
Two Pence returns with the 2nd Annual Fall Festival of Shakespeare: Chicago, their annual high school residency program modeled after Shakespeare & Company's acclaimed 25 year program in western Massachusetts. In this ten-week extracurricular program Two Pence partners with high schools to produce a 90-minute Shakespeare play designed and performed by students. Students work with a team of professional Teaching Artists in acting, directing, stage managing and designing to create intimate, personal connections to Shakespeare's language and stories. Plays are cut and double-cast but words are not changed from the original Early-Modern text.
Two Pence is also working with Chicago Public School Pablo-Casals Elementary School in a Fall Festival inspired smaller scale residency. Scenes will be presented as part of the Pablo-Casals Family Literacy Night November 20th at 3:15pm.
The Fall Festival of Shakespeare: Chicago empowers students to use their own life experience to make Shakespeare’s plays alive and relevant. Fall Festival schools also benefit from classroom workshops during the school day giving students the skills to approach the rigorous texts they will be reading throughout high school. The Fall Festival benefits schools with no existing theatre curriculum, schools with established drama departments, and everything in between.
