Shakespeare LIVE! is Coming to the Mount on May 30
Get ready for a day of Shakespearean shenanigans when the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey spends the day at Mount St. Dominic Academy!
On Wednesday, May 30, 2018, Shakespeare LIVE! will be at the Mount! The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey Thespians will perform “A Comedy of Errors” for the entire school. There will be a Question & Answer session about the performance directly after the play. Students will break into groups of 30 for a “Speak the Speech” workshop conducted by the members of the troupe.
Enhanced learning and prep for the future
Through the wonderful generosity of the MSDA Parents Association, the Shakespeare LIVE! performance is planned at the Mount. The event enhances the learning experience of students and furthers the MSDA English curriculum. Bringing Shakespeare to numerous curricular disciplines as well as providing live theatre exposure is a benefit to the entire school. In addition, the show and workshop are a precursor to a future production at the Mount. (Hint: the MSDA Fall Production is probably Shakespeare!)
This program is a joint venture by the English Department, the Curriculum Directors, and the Performing Arts Department. Check out more information about the event at the Shakespeare Theatre of NJ and Comedy of Errors website.
