31 Jul – 4 Aug
The Music Garage presents The Journey Man Shakespeare
Sign up now for “Summer with Shakespeare”
The Journey Man Shakespeare is an exciting and empowering programme that was developed in UK by storyteller and drama practitioner, Johnny Gillett aka The Journey Man.
Johnny has made many appearances in Singapore over the years and now his dynamic programme is resident at the German European School in Singapore. Programmes are now available for children aged from 8 to 15 years old as this summer he presents a series of opportunities to experience his creative approach to Shakespeare.
Over each 5 DAY Program
The children will be introduced to the key scenes and characters of various Shakespeare plays, all of which will be given an exciting and surprising twist.
“The Gaming of the Shrew”
“Henry the Force – Episode 1”
“Much Ado About Earthlings”
Through fun games and innovative drama activities, the children will no only get to know the stories and the characters of the original plays, but they will begin to re-shape them to be played in a new setting, whether the world of video games or space adventures. The children will develop their own dialogue, as well as using a few Shakespeare quotes, then design their own scenery, props and costumes. At the end of each five days, the children will present a 30 minute performance to family and friends, which will be their own creation and reinterpretation of Shakespeare’s play.
Parents have always been astounded at how those children who attended The Journey Man Shakespeare programmes become inspired by Shakespeare and eager to see more of his plays. They come home and discuss the characters and plots with their friends and siblings. And many return year after year, even if it’s the same play, because they want to see what happens this time, when they play a different part.
