Fall Teen Production
September 7 – October 28
4:00 – 6:00 PM
Allie Pratt (she/hers) will be directing this teen reimagining of the Scottish play, which was her first professional Shakespeare show years and years ago. Allie will be focusing on how the play works in a 2021 high school, examining the social constructs, hierarchy, and power dynamics in the story. Allie has been a professional working actor and educator for the last decade and is thrilled to be ushering Shakespeare back into the Playhouse! (Read more about Allie and our other teaching artists here.)
A mean girls retelling of this chilling classic written by the Bard himself.
Shakespeare is considered by many to be the Olympics of acting! We will be exploring this classic text with a contemporary lens, identifying recurring motifs, imagery, and recontextualizing and devising how this work sits in the modern world. Teens will put to practice the skills they’re learning in their literature classes and embody these centuries-old characters with brand new meaning. A focus on close reading and text analysis, vocal work and diction, as well as classical acting with contemporary techniques. We will adapt this centuries-old horror story to fit a contemporary high school, witches and all, just in time for Halloween!
In-person class will follow current Covid regulations at the time
