Over the course of five weeks, students will be introduced to the plays in their original cultural and theatrical contexts.  At no cost, they will also have the opportunity to attend a live performance of Hamlet by the Ithaca Shakespeare Company, experiencing firsthand the pleasures and challenges of interpreting Shakespeare in modern performance.

No previous experience with Shakespeare required.
