Shakespeare Faire!!

This October four–time award-winning Perform It! Young People’s Stage Company will hold their second annual Shakespeare Faire with acting, theater, and Shakespeare presented in a fun, hands-on, all-day workshop. Last year's Faire was a tremendous success. Twenty-four students attended and thoroughly enjoyed their experience with all aspects of theater. This year's Faire will be similar to last year's with students learning the inner workings of putting on a Shakespeare play including how to apply stage makeup, how to design stage costumes, how stage lights work, and what is involved backstage to make a show happen. Participants will learn about Elizabethan history and meet Shakespeare’s wife, Anne Hathaway, and their children Judith, Hamnet, and Susannah Shakespeare in a living timeline. The day's activities will culminate in an opportunity to act in a scene from a Shakespearean play with the help of trained, young Perform It! actors. This is a lively, hands-on, educational opportunity that you won’t want to miss. Open to all students grades 6 – 12.

Register now! In order to accommodate more students, we will be holding the Faire on two different days, Thursday October 22nd and Friday October 23rd , from 8:45 AM to 3:00 PM. The cost is $30 per student for the entire day. The Shakespeare Faire will take place at Village Players Theater on Glendon Street in Wolfeboro, NH. Contact Jenny Watson for more information at 603-524-3736 or visit our website and download an application. Come join the fun!

Sarah went to this last year and LOVED IT! This year she was accepted to Perform It, so there is a good chance we may be able to bring a few of you down to the Faire if you are interested. It is worth the trip!
