Shakespeare Club for 3rd, 4th & 5th Graders typically starts after school in January to prepare for the April DPS Shakespeare Festival.
At Bill Roberts we are excited to introduce children from ECE through 8th grades to theatre and the benefits from participating in drama, building their skills in:
Creativity, enthusiasm, energy and a positive approach to life.
Ongoing confidence, self esteem.
Skill in verbal communication.
Effective social interaction.
The drama programs do not create one “star,” as we believe that all children are stars and the program strives to create opportunities for all children to shine.
Our Drama teacher creates curriculum using many resources, including the Colorado Theatre Standards.
In the primary grades, we focus on creating drama and in the intermediate grades the focus is more on performing.
Traditionally, the Drama classes participate in a Holiday program as part of a middle school enrichment class, a talent show in the spring, an evening performance in May and the Denver Public Schools Shakespeare Festival with around 80 students attending each year.
