Rehearsing a Dream

shakespeare memeIn honor of our first day of rehearsal for A Midsummer Night’s Dream, take a peek at this Shakespearean meme that I snuck into the resource packet I prepared for the actors…I know, it’s silly, but I thought it fitting, considering the number of words the English language owes to Shakespeare. Can you guess how many?

Over 1700, including “moonbeam” and “swagger,” both of which were used for the first time in Midsummer. Interested in learning more? Check out this great website: http://www.shakespeare-online.com/biography/wordsinvented.html
