Bringing Books to Life II: Thematic Adaptation

Grades Covered: 6-12
Subjects Covered: English Language Arts, Drama


Hannah Keefer

Sometimes a direct adaptation is not the most appropriate choice for a book, especially when approaching memoirs, poems, and other nonfiction. Thematic adaptation uses the book as a jumping-off point to create a brand-new theatrical piece exploring the same themes. This workshop will focus on techniques that work best for this adaptation method. This strategy explored is also suited for texts for younger readers.

On sale December 2, 2020 starting at 9:00am.
