Scenes from Shakespeare: Fifteen Cuttings for the Classroom

Scenes from Shakespeare: Fifteen Cuttings for the Classroom Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A collection of fifteen short scenes from five Shakespeare plays: "Romeo and Juliet", "The Merchant of Venice", "Julius Caesar", "Othello", and "Hamlet". Each scene is preceded by a plot synopsis and descriptions of the characters.

Synopsis:

Many instructors teach Shakespeare by studying only one of his many plays, owing to time constraints. Now students are able to easily study a variety of his works and come to a more complete understanding of the world's most famous playwright. Only scenes with small casts, between two and seven characters, are included. Each scene is preceded by character descriptions and plot synopsis so that actors will understand the setting and motivation of the characters. All scenes are between 15 and 25 minutes in length. Ideal for classroom performance or for contests, auditions, or acting workshops. The collection features scenes from Romeo and Juliet, The Merchant of Venice, Jullus Caesar, Othello, and Hamlet. Ideal for the class that only has a three-to-four-week period to study Shakespeare. Contents: Introduction: Romeo and Juliet Act II, Scene I; Romeo and Juliet Act III, Scene 1; Romeo and Juliet Act IV, Scene 3; The Merchant of Venice Act I, Scene 3; The Merchant of Venice Act III, Scene 3; Julius Caesar Act II, Scene 2; Julius Caesar Act III, Scene 2; Othelio, Act III, Scene 3; Othello, Act III, Scene 4; Hamlet, Act I, Scene I: Hamlet, Act I, Scene 2; Hamlet, Act I, Scene 5; Hamlet, Act III, Scene 1; Hamlet, Act III, Hamlet, Act III, Scene 4; Hamlet, Act IV, Scene 7.
