        Twelfth Night: Characterization | Shakespeare in the Schools

        Five actors discuss some of the components they employ to craft a character. Actors who play multiple characters differentiate between characters by changing their appearance, movement, voice, and posture. These five actors also talk about how hairstyles, costumes, fake facial hair, and wigs can aide in making two characters different even when played by the same person. This resource contains an Introductions Video to the actors and the actors talking about two major components to characterization in the Hair, Wigs, and Costumes Video and Multiple Characters Video. Discussion questions are also included.
