This is the Shakespeare in 30 collection. Each play in this series has been adapted for teens to tackle in about a half an hour. You can use this script for Reader's Theatre (1-2 class periods), a Staged Reading (one week), or a full production (3-4 weeks+). These resources have been tested and performed with students in grades 6-12. Break a leg!
Each play has a different "take" on the original. Some have been abridged to focus on major characters and themes, some are adaptations or mash-ups, one is focused on stage combat, and one is a gender-bent version.
All new additions to the Shakespeare in 30 collection will be added to this bundle. :)

"This resource provides the 'quick & dirty' of a drama, without the dragging on process of a 2-3 month unit. I also love that it provides teamwork and empathy, as my kids need to continue to realize the world doesn't revolve entirely around them!" -Victoria R.
