Box Option One

Shakespeare Scenes

Shakespeare Scenes are perfect for 1-3 students. We currently offer three Shakespeare scene genres including Comedy, Tragedy, and History Romance. Although you should choose the best genre for you based on needs and skill level, we recommend entry-level actors begin with a Comedy box.

 

A Shakespeare Scenes box includes speeches and scenarios of varying difficulty from your chosen type of Shakespeare plays. Sturdy cards hold individual "assignments" for students, summaries, vocab guides, and set-up ideas.
