For ten weeks DCHS students have teamed with Two Pence Teaching Artists on acting, directing, stage-managing and designing Shakespeare's hilarious forest comedy. Come see what the students have been working on! All performances are open to the public.
In this ten-week extracurricular program Two Pence partners with high schools to produce a 90-minute Shakespeare play designed and performed by students. Students work with a team of professional Teaching Artists to create intimate, personal connections to Shakespeare's language and stories. Plays are cut and double-cast but words are not changed from the original Early-Modern text.
Two Pence is also working with Chicago Public School Pablo-Casals Elementary in a Fall Festival inspired smaller scale residency. Those students will be presenting some of their work before the show at DCHS.
The Two Pence 2nd Annual Fall Festival of Shakespeare: Chicago was made possible in part by generous support from the Target Corporation.
