About the event

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.

About the event

Personal loyalty and patriotic duty collide as cries of revolt rock the Roman Capitol in Shakespeare’s searing political thriller. This depiction of a nation at a crossroads , and the men competing for leadership, is as timely now as when Shakespeare penned it in 1599. Themes for classroom study and discussion include the concepts of honor, leadership, and the effects of propaganda on the masses, as well as a comparison between actual historical events and Shakespeare’s artistic license.

About the event

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.
While Sherlock Holmes was solving crimes in England, Nick Carter was busy in Manhattan. Carter first appeared as the hero in a serialized novel, "The Old Detective's Pupil," in "The New York Weekly" in 1886 – a year before Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Holmes' first caper, "A Study in Scarlet." In 1930, the Sherlock Holmes radio series began with "The Adventure of the Speckled Band" and in 1943, the Nick Carter series was launched with "The Strange Dr. Devolo." While "Copper Beeches" is not the original script by Edith Meiser (this one is adapted by Gayle Stahlhuth), "The Strange Dr. Devolo" IS the original script, used with permission by Conde Nast.
Numerous Nick Carter novels were written by a variety of people through 1990, with Nick changing with the times. In 1964, the series changed from "Nick Carter: Master Detective" to "Nick Carter: Killmaster" to compete with James Bond and other international super spies.
