Get Yours Now!
- Shakespeare show (suitable for all secondary levels)
- 50 –55 minutes
Shakespeare, Shakespeare, Shakespeare and we’ll throw in a set of steak knives!
This bold and eccentric take on Shakespeare is part travelling sideshow and part infomercial – a very persuasive approach to the Bard for to help students who are new to his work.
Featuring scenes and songs from Macbeth, The Taming of the Shrew, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and more, Get Yours Now! also includes the often hilarious responses of other writers to Shakespearian plays and poems.
The actors of Loose Canon are able to give students the experience and understanding that can only be obtained from seeing drama in performance.
Questions of meaning, character and atmosphere are answered for students in a way that reading the plays can never do.
One of the primary aims of Get Yours Now! is to encourage students to treat the work of Shakespeare with less fear and reverence and enjoy the plays in whatever way they choose – and particularly for those students who have just begun their Shakespearean studies it is an invigorating introduction.
