PRE PRODUCTION: HAMLET (Part One)

Description:

    Ever thought you might want to direct a show? In this course we will go through the basic steps that directors take before they even cast a production. Through script analysis, set planning, writing a costume plot and character descriptions students will learn why over three hundred and eighty years after his death, William Shakespeare's Hamlet remains one of the most challenging tragic heroes of all time. The story of Hamlet has been used as the base of movies such as The Bad Sleep Well, Strange Brew, and even Disney's The Lion King.
    During this 5 week course we will begin the pre-production process with script analysis. Part Two and Three of this course will follow as we continue the process of preparing a show for production. Taking AP English? This course can give you an edge as it is one of the subjects that is used in that class.
