Workshop Information

The Sonnet Man: Hip-Hop Shakespeare Writing Workshop

Beginning, Intermediate, Advanced / Musical Theatre
Presented by Devon Glover

Let’s put Shakespeare into our own words. In the Sonnet Man workshop, we will be introduced to the Bard’s sonnets in a modern innovative way: through hip-hop. We will study the structure and make up of a Shakespearean (Elizabethan) sonnet: their components, values, and meaning, as well as write our own. The workshop will conclude with presentations of original sonnets written and performed by the attendees.
