Shakespeare Unshakled Downloadable Musical Play with Script

Shakespeare Unshackled
Bad Wolf Press
Downloadable Musical Play with Script; Sheet Music; Grades 5-12+

This show answers every question everyone has ever had about Shakespeare.

Well, maybe it doesn't quite do that. But it does touch on many cool aspects of Shakespeare's life, Elizabethan London, and plays and theater. Most of the titles of Shakespeare's plays are mentioned (often in humorous contexts), and there are dozens of quotations from Shakespeare, including extended passages from Othelloand Romeo and Juliet (and a fractured description of A Midsummer Night's Dream). It's a perfect introduction for students and audiences to the real thing!

*35-minute musical play for grades 5-12+
*Includes the script, teacher's guide, and audio recording (which contains a vocal and instrumental version of each song)
*Simple to do - no music or drama experience needed!

Shakespeare Unshackled reinforces students' famililarity with:

*Shakespeare's life
*The nature of theatrical productions (actors, staging, audience, especially as regards the Old Globe Theatre)
*Acting companies and patronage
*Elizabethan and Jacobean London
*Structure and style of plays
*The canon
