YOUTH THEATRE CAMP ages 8-15
Playing with Shakespeare! Mack-Beth

Using the tragic story of Macbeth as a starting point, students will create their own play by twisting the famous tragedy into a comedy–a kind of “Fakespeare”! Students will create this parody together using improv and playwriting techniques to shape their own version of these events. A few basic stage combat moves may be taught and used in our play also. It’s up to the students to create a fun version of one of Shakespeare’s most bloodthirsty tales.
