“Methinks this summer doth stink too much” need not be your mantra for yet another boring summer. Pierce College is offering fun and excitement with a Shakespearean flair during June and July.
Earn 10 English or drama credits and see six plays at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, Ore., with the Pierce College Continuing Education program this summer. (Note: K-12 teachers can choose to earn clock hours through the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction instead of college credits for completing this course.)
The Oregon Shakespeare Festival series includes eight evening classes at Pierce College Fort Steilacoom in June and July to help you understand the language and the culture. Then, put those new skills to work with a trip to Ashland, Ore., July 6-9, for the festival. You’ll see six plays, including “The Music Man,” “Don Quixote,” “Macbeth,” “Much Ado About Nothing,” “Equivocation,” and “Henry VIII.”
Cost is $989 and includes Pierce College tuition, tickets to all six plays, a backstage tour and discussion with an actor or director, and four nights in a hotel (double occupancy). Students must provide only their own meals and transportation to and from the festival.
