Bell Shakespeare Professional Learning in May

Shakespeare’s plays began at The Globe, performed for all walks of society and alive with the magic of theatre. Too often when educating our children we forget that crucial word ‘play’ and introduce them to the Bard as a book, and an old one at that, with the act of deciphering the language distancing them from the immediacy of the still surprisingly contemporary and universal truths at their heart.

At Bell Shakespeare we are passionate about giving our audiences, young and old, access to experiencing Shakespeare as it was meant to be, as a live theatre production. But we also know how important it is to assist our teachers and educators with strategies to bring the plays alive, engaging students with their study of Shakespeare on a deep level and alleviating any of their own fears about tackling the Bard.
