Shakespeare at Agecroft at Agecroft Hall

Description: How would Shakespeare have staged his works? How might the audience have responded to his plays in Elizabethan England? Agecroft Hall offers students the rare opportunity to study Shakespeare in a setting contemporary with his life. This program “sets the scene” by beginning with a tour of the museum, followed by a discussion of Elizabethan entertainment, theaters, actors, and audiences. Thematic and historical issues important to the selected scene are also discussed. Then it’s “show-time,” as students become the actors, technicians and audience members for the staging of a Shakespearean scene.
