What people are saying about The 30-Minute Shakespeare series: "...A truly fun, emotional, and sometimes magical first experience...guided by a sagacious, knowledgeable, and intuitive educator."--Library Journal "A master at engaging students in the
process of performing a Shakespeare
scene." --Janet Field-Pickering, head of
education, Folger Shakespeare Library "Wonderfully informative and fun.
You can't do better." -Charles P. Lord,
Headmaster, St. Timothy's School
Baltimore, MD "Truly an advocate of the child, of the arts and of humanity."
--Tia Powell Harris
Education, Kennedy Center 'From a teacher's perspective, this book was a great way to introduce students to a Shakespeare play they otherwise might never have encountered in high school... much more fun working with the adaptation than it might have been if i had tackled the full script. I strongly recommend this book (and the rest of the series) to educators who want to introduce a variety of Shakespeare plays to their students in a limited amount of time.
--James Brendlinger, Chairman, Department of Arts and Communications
Lake Lowell High School, Winter Park, FL "Nick Newlin's 30-minute play cuttings
are perfect for students who have no
experience with Shakespeare. Each 30-minute mini-play
is a play in itself with a beginning, middle, and end."--Michael
Chairman, Dept. of Theatre St. Mary's College, Maryland
