The full complement of characters from Demetrius to Lysander to the incomparable Puck, were performed by actors, some whom just happened to be wearing blue sweats with "CDC Prisoner" emblazoned down the side.

At the conference, you'll learn:
How to prepare and teach language-based activities for elementary students
Activities for unifying language and action to help students interpret texts and master meaning
How to select, edit, and act out scenes from Shakespeare with your students
To register, please complete the Registration Form and email it to educate@folger.edu. Payments must be received no later than June 19. Payment instructions are included on the information form.

Joe Craft and Denver Public Schools-Folger Shakespeare Library


Joe Craft, a retired teacher from Denver and director of that city’s Shakespeare Festival, shares with the Denver Public Schools the 2009 Shakespeare Steward Award.

Craft was the driving force behind the Shakespeare Festival, recruiting Denver Public School teachers in 1984 to train students for performances. “Some said it would never work because no kid is ever going to want to learn Shakespeare,” Craft said. That year, some 400 young thespians took to the stage.

Today, he reports, the number of participants is approaching 4,000, with an audience of another 2,000 parents, friends, and passersby.

Jude Law in 'Hamlet': What did the critics think?

One of the most talked-about productions of the current West End season, "Hamlet," starring Jude Law, has generated more advance buzz and online speculation than all of the blockbuster musicals playing in London put together.

Of course, much of the talk has centered around the play's pulchritudinous star, who is no stranger to audiences on either side of the pond. The Oscar-nominated Law, who has returned regularly to the stage between his Hollywood acting assignments, takes the role of Shakespeare's melancholy Dane for the first time in his career in a production from the Donmar Warehouse and directed by Michael Grandage. (The staging duties originally belonged to Kenneth Branagh, but he withdrew due to scheduling conflicts.)
