Though classes began last week, we have several that were delayed a week and will begin this week. The performing arts tend to be viewed only as opportunities onstage… but the reality is, without the elements that happen behind the scenes, the performers would not have a production at all! We offer several backstage options at AWIP and highlight two classes here that fit into that category…
Intro to Shakespeare
Shakespeare often elicits eye roll and groans from teenagers and adults alike. It’s often thought of as boring, a chore, or an obligation. However, Shakespeare’s plays were the Hollywood of their time. Meant to entertain nobles and peasants, these plays cover a wide array of topics. In this course, we will study the time of William Shakespeare, his personal history, and how he crafted the English language to bring his plays to life. Offered on Tuesdays from 1-2 for 10 weeks.
