Middle school

The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey's teaching artists will help students begin to discover how a piece of Stage Combat is created. Focusing primarily on safety and storytelling, participating students will be given an opportunity to learn some basic "hand to hand" stage combat techniques. Hopefully this fun, fast paced workshop will give students a glimpse into the hard work and training that goes into creating the realistic illusions of violence they see on stage.

Step back in time with two different “who-done-its” presented as radio-style broadcasts, complete with live sound effects and commercials, with two different detectives: "Sherlock Holmes Adventure of the Copper Beeches," about a governess in peril, and "Nick Carter and the Strange Dr. Devolo," in which Manhattan millionaires are missing. The same cast-of-six performs Holmes, Watson and other characters from Victorian England, and then switches to Nick Carter and friends solving crimes in New York City during World War II.

Learn to juggle with a former Big Apple Circus performer. James Rana’s workshops were so popular in the past, that ELTC had to bring him back. Ages 8 and up are welcome, with or without juggling experience.

Take a journey through some of the bard's greatest works and characters in this interactive performance, engaging young audiences and introducing a new way to look at Shakespeare.
