What do I know about Shakespeare?


My name is Grace, and I love Shakespeare. I was introduced to the Bard when studying “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” in my 8th grade english class. Just a short year later, I was referenced by a friend to The American Shakespeare Center’s Theater Camp, which I attended for three summers. My combined time at this camp was 10 weeks, and I highly recommend this camp to anyone with an interest in early modern literature or acting in general. It is a fantastic experience where you get to work with professional actors in workshops, attend lectures given by experts and finish the session with a performance at the Blackfriars Playhouse. (ASCTC opened their applications today, it can be found here: https://americanshakespearecenter.formstack.com/forms/asctc2018camperapplication). In my blog, I will be talking about things I’ve learned through my experience and research. I hope to teach people about Shakespeare and convince those who aren’t in tune with his works that learning Shakespearean text isn’t all that bad.

  1. Grace,

    Looking forward to reading more about your passion for Shakespeare. I remember reading plays in high school English class and being the only one laughing at the bawdy jokes. That is always a clue for me on who really ‘gets’ what is going on.

    Thanks and have the best day ever.
    -Mr. Ajima
