Shakespeare's Globe

Staging It

Direct a Shakespeare scene at the Globe from your desktop or tablet.

Staging It is a brand new interactive film maker. It allows you to understand Shakespeare’s text from a director’s point of view and virtually stage a scene at the Globe theatre.

Actors are filmed performing a moment of a play on the Globe stage. Each line of their speech is shot four times, each time performed in different ways (happy, flirtatious, defensive, etc.) Watch each of the clips and add your choice to a dynamic storyboard to build up a final scene.

Why not try making your own and see your name in the credits next to William Shakespeare.

The scenes explored are key moments in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Much Ado About Nothing and Macbeth, all central texts for Key Stage 3 and 4.
