    8th Grade Theatre Students Get a Commedia Dell’Arte Master Class

    On Wednesday October 26th and Thursday October 27th, Jon Greene taught a two-part Commedia Dell’Arte masterclass to Mr. Martin’s eighth grade theater students. Mr. Greene is a Commedia expert, having studied the form extensively in Italy and France.  He combined a lecture-performance on the history and structure of Commedia with a participatory element to help the kids develop their own lazzis, or mini-scenes incorporating the masks they created.
