973 Winter 2020 Exploring Shakespeare's English Renaissance Stage
Tuesday, 2:15–3:40, Feb. 18
Instructor: American Shakespeare Center Representative (to be determined)
Coordinator: Norma Reck

The well-known American Shakespeare Center, located in Staunton, Virginia, aims to “recover the joy and accessibility of Shakespeare’s theatre language and humanity by exploring the English Renaissance stage and its practices through performance and education.” In this unique class, which is all about Shakespeare, we will examine such topics as rhetoric, staging direction, music and dancing performance, printing, scrolls, and text. We will follow up with an option to attend a performance by the famed Blackfriars Playhouse of A Midsummer Night’s Dream in March at Fairfax City’s Town Hall. Details on that performance will be provided at a later date.
