The YES! Project is a summer youth camp where young people engage Shakespearean text and themes. We play theater games, learn Shakespearean style and scenes, and devise original dramatic material as we speak back at the text. Then we put it all together in a 45 minute or so performance out at Woodward Park for friends and family. This is a partnership project between FPU and Woodward Shakespeare Festival.
This year we're exploring a theme--Shakespeare's Villains. Don John (Much Ado), Iago (Othello), Claudius (Hamlet), Macbeth...who are the baddies in Shakespeare's plays and what do we learn from them?
WHO & HOW:
No experience necessary; just a love of Shakespeare's plays!
Open to anyone going into, in, or just graduated from high school (we occasionally let eager middle school students in too!)
