Shakespeare and the Stars

  • Youth class (ages 8-11): Saturdays, Oct. 1-22, 9a-11am
  • Teen class (ages 12-18): Saturdays, Oct. 29-Nov. 19, 9am-11am

In each 4-week class, students will explore the many ways Shakespeare’s works are influenced by an understanding of the planets, stars, and celestial bodies. Students will engage with Shakespeare’s text, dig for clues about astronomy embedded within the 400-year-old plays, and prepare monologues and scenes for an informal showing on the last day of class. This class will help students explore the connections between theatre and the stars. Open to students of all experience levels and abilities.

Location: Classes will take place inside the Imig Music Building (on campus at CU Boulder).

Bonus: each class will also tour Fiske Planetarium, on campus at CU Boulder!
