Shakespeare invented many of the original words we still use in today’s English language. He created over 1,700 words by changing many existing nouns into verbs, verbs into adjectives, and by adding prefixes and suffixes to them, not to mention inventing brand new words in general. He truly was a “word-smith” to be sure!
A PLAY ON WORDS is a 60 minute workshop where we use many Shakespearian words in small group skits and have fun acting them out for one another. You don’t need to have any knowledge of theatre or even of Shakespeare to participate in this workshop. It is a great way to celebrate Shakespeare and all of his wonderful contributions to our world.
