The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 20.0101 Friday, 6 March 2009
Date: Wednesday, 04 Mar 2009 23:22:51 -0500
Subject: Middle School Drama
My suggestions for the age group would be The Glass Menagerie, The
Miracle Worker, The Petrified Forest, Inherit the Wind, and (at the
upper age) Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. My stepdaughters are 11 & 15, &
read on this level, though they would need an intro regarding the
difference between prose & the more sparse play script. I'd include a
lesson on stage sets: What does the set have to show us since the script
doesn't contain descriptive passages.
