It is the goal of the Young Actors Shakespeare Workshop, a program of
Shakespearean acting and production for young people age 8 to 15, to teach one
play by Shakespeare per summer, through the medium of performance.  More
details if you're interested:

I would like to suggest something that I have been working on in
my classes for the past 5 years and am now trying to write about.
I believe that students can best be introduced to the nature of
theater and especially the nature of Elizabethan theater by making
them aware of the metadramatic qualities of the plays, particularly
TS, MND, and RII.  In a course entitled Shakespeare: the Early
Plays, I initially focus on the why and how of self-referential art
through an examination of Velasquez' painting "Las Meninas." Then I
use a phenomenological approach to the nature of play-going
experience. This establishes a base for approaching the three plays
metadramatically with special attention to onstage audiences and
characters who are consciously feigning or role- playing.
 
If your project goes forward and if you are interested in this
approach to the plays which is intensely performance-aware, please
let me know. I began to develop these methods several years ago in an
NEH Summer Seminar on Performance Criticism directed by J.L. Styan.
