LOLA is excited to welcome The Summit Players back to Land O’ Lakes, this time leading a special free children’s theater workshop on Sunday, July 23, from 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. The Summit Players will arrive on the LOLA deck to teach, play and act. They will provide a fun workshop for children of all ages and for those who wish to read along, the Players will reveal the “code”.
The Shakespeare Code [Abridged]: Learn the basics of Shakespeare’s history, how to recognize the clues he gave his actors, and put them to use! Earn your Shakespeare Detective Badge: spend an hour learning and playing with the Summit Players as they lead you through snippets of some of Shakespeare’s famous works, then take to the stage with a monologue of your own or with a team.
Based in the Milwaukee area, the Summit Players is a traveling Shakespeare troupe that focus workshops on general theater practices, character work, Shakespearean language, and history of Elizabethan theater. For this event, the troupe will lead participants in an unrehearsed Shakespeare workshop to teach technique and character work and then allow actors to perform on their own. According to their website, Summit workshops aim to use theater as a learning medium to introduce young people to language, communication, and constructive play.
This is a free event but registrations are welcome. For more information call the LOLA office at 715-547-3950.
