Students who attend our theater department's performance of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream may bring a ticket/stub/program to class Monday for extra credit. (If this is not an option, you may watch a recorded version of the play by anyone else.)
This is a short video summary of Shakespeare's play, Hamlet, as shown in class. Students should make note of the main characters; Hamlet, Gertrude, Claudius, Ophelia, Polonius, Laertes, Horatio, and Marcellus.
Here's a short summary of the plot from A Midsummer Night.
