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!

INSTANT 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!”
