Midsummer Night's Dream with Staten Island Students! |
Working with 4th & 5th grade students from P.S. 18, Strike Anywhere Teaching Artist, Carrie Ellman-Larsen, will bring Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" to life. Over the course of several weeks, students will take a deep dive into the original text using active, experiential exercises to connect to the language. Students will work towards a performance designing costumes, creating props, and performing select scenes from the play.

|"I saw the project deepen students understanding and enjoyment of the plays of Shakespeare and provide students with a valuable theater education experience. The residency often helped the girls overcome shyness, feel confident about speaking in front of a group, and it sparked an interest in Shakespeare that was a joy to behold." - Liselle Sakrani Former Teacher and Vice Principal St. Aloysius School|
