Shakespeare’s Shorts

Brevity is the soul of wit!’

Introduce your students to the characters, plot, and language of some of Shakespeare’s most famous plays in the most engaging, memorable way!

HALF-HOUR HAMLET

This highly physical production takes out all the procrastination – the tragedy is performed in 20 minutes, then in 7 minutes, and again in just 3.

EXPRESS MACBETH

This pacey performance spins the murder, betrayal, and madness of the Scottish Play into a tale of fun, frivolity, and… well, madness!

ROMEO & JULIET

This lively show turns the tragedy of the star-crossed lovers into a high-paced comedy with plenty of wooden-sword-buckling!

BOOKING FORM

“We enjoyed the production and know that the students will get a lot from it. They found it enjoyable, especially the comic element. Getting students up on stage was different!”
