Shakespeare: The Musical

Shakespeare: The Musical New

In Andrea McCormick’s Shakespeare: The Musical residency, students will take a play from Shakespeare and incorporate it with music and dance. Students will be encouraged to analyze selections from the script, find the rhythmic patterns in the writing, and work them into song as either a melody or rap, with movement or dance. As an added reinforcement of comprehension, students will be asked to rewrite selections from the script in current English to create a new, abridged musical version of the play.
