Sixty-Minute Shakespeare Collection

from 8.99

Adapted by Cass Foster.

The introduction to SHAKESPEARE is not an easy task. Sometimes the magic can use a little assistance! To make the works of Shakespeare accessible to all ages and levels of education, Cass Foster combines his experience as a professor emeritus of theatre, fight choreographer, and stage director to provide the Sixty-Minute Shakespeare series. Foster’s renditions of the timeless tales are not adaptations or modernizations, but rather judiciously condensed versions of the Bard's classics. Titles sold individually or as a set.

Testimonials

“The perfect compromise for readers wishing to enjoy the brilliance of a true master...”

— Marcia Berneger, The Muse Book Reviews

“Rather than retell, the series preserves the original play format and the Bard's language, while providing excellent footnotes to archaic words. It's a smart stepping stone to the real thing.”

— NEA Today

“An ideal alternative for those who lack the time to tackle the unabridged versions. . . the abridged versions offer the excitement of the Shakespeare tales, as well as the wonderful imagery in the prose and verse.

— Trevor Cairney, Literacy, families and learning

“...chock-full of practical advice and production support. Providing young people with a positive Shakespeare experience will set the stage for a lifetime appreciation of the classics. It is the best gift we can give kids in an age of sound bytes!

— Marla Truini, Director of Drama/Outreach, Westover School
