Shakespeare workshops offered
Youngstown Playhouse will offer “Shake It Off: It’s Shakespeare,” workshops in August for middle school and high school students.
AnnMarie Lowerre will lead an accessible exploration of Shakespeare and his creative mind that mixes contemporary ideas and classic thoughts to increase understanding of the Bard’s work. Participants will study the words, costumes and characters of Shakespeare through games and acting exercises and put on a showcase for friends and family at the end of the week.
The workshop runs Aug. 3 to 5, with high school students meeting from 9 a.m. to noon and middle school students meeting from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Playhouse, 600 Playhouse Lane, Youngstown. The showcase for both groups is scheduled at 11 a.m. Aug. 6. The cost is $75, and Aug. 1 is the registration deadline. Go to www.youngstownplayhouse.org/education to register.
