What educators are saying

A great quick little resource, my students really enjoyed the creative writing extra as well! We'll be performing their plays in class tomorrow, but it looks very promising so far!


Get students up and acting any Shakespeare play with this fun final performance project. Watch groups from your class script, rehearse, and perform three minute versions of Shakespeare in modern English.

What's included:

• Clear project guidelines to get your students launched

• Performance Award Ballots to keep students engaged in watching the final performances

• An engaging bonus writing activity you can use with any Shakespeare play

This is a brand new product for me, so please consider leaving a review. I've done lots of lightning version acting with my own students, and I hope you'll enjoy it as much as we have!
