        Twelfth Night: Improv Workshop | Shakespeare in the Schools

        Improvisation is a key to Shakespearean works because there are no detailed scripts for actors to follow when performing a play by Shakespeare. This lesson is an introduction to three rules of improvisation (agreement, imagination, and given circumstance) through exercises that sharpen students’ ability to think on their feet and work as a team. They will then apply those exercises to exploring the theatrical world of Twelfth Night’s Illyria. This resource contains a Short Video with the actors discussing this topic, an example in the Full Workshop Video, an Excerpts Video containing examples from the full play, and a walk through in the Lesson Plan.
