CultureWorks Productions, in partnership with Shakespeare’s Globe (London), is developing an exciting new service called<b> Shakespeare Central</b>, an easily accessible database of all kinds of Shakespeare media.
<b>Shakespeare Central</b> will be the hub for a vast collection of Shakespeare information in print, film and video simplifying access for teachers and students. As our collection grows, it will include movies, images, photos, extensive video interviews with Shakespearean actors, directors, designers, and educators, as well as enduring performances from some of the world’s best theaters, such as The Royal Shakespeare Company, Oregon Shakespeare Festival, The Folger Library, Shakespeare’s Globe, Theater for A New Audience, and many others.
Our mission is to engage students of all backgrounds and promote the idea that <b>“Shakespeare Changes Lives.” </b>
Teachers and students will chiefly benefit from our Digital Media Archive, an ever-growing collection of materials that will be made available for free or for a small fee. These materials will be curated and distributed from one central location – no more hunting around the Internet – and packable into custom collections for your individual teaching needs.
Please take 10 minutes of your busy day to fill out a survey – and be entered for a chance to win the DVD set of <b>“The Hollow Crown”</b> video series, the exciting new BBC productions of four Shakespeare history plays (Richard II, Henry IV, Pts I&II, Henry V) that recently aired on Public TV.
