Shakespeare's Hamlet for kids 10-13 years old! Children's 40-minute play scripts and other acting tools are educational and fun.
"Something is rotten in the state of Denmark" but not for long! Hamlet will soon set things right. That is, if he doesn't spend too much time thinking about it.
Some of the most famous quotes in the English language appear in Hamlet and they give students a lot to think about. "Brevity is the soul of wit," "To be or not to be," and "Though this be madness; yet there is method in't" are just a few.
This royalty free acting edition is a resource for students to prepare for and act in an abridged school play using Shakespeare's original text from one of his most famous tragedies. There are twelve characters, including the Chorus, that appear in the STAGEiT! edition though parts can be double cast (requiring fewer students) or cast in choral character teams (requiring more students).
An entire chapter in student friendly language describes how to use the Tools. Use of nouns, verbs, metaphors and stage directions are explored in addition to Hamlet's journey from thinker to avenger in a character study using archetypes. Additional features include: Cast of Characters (with pronunciations), Plot Synopsis, Paraphrasing Worksheets, and Acting Scripts along with a chapter about The Rehearsal Process, which includes how to note stage movement, and The Culminating Performance.
STAGEiT! is conceived as a comprehensive series of interconnected companion titles. A Professional Development Guide and Directing Tools for Teachers of Grades 5-8 are available separately.
