Texas Wesleyan history students get a lesson in Tudor Theatre

09.16.2021 | By: Christopher Ohan

On the evening of Tuesday, Sept. 14, lines from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream could be heard echoing across the Kay Granger Mall as a group of Texas Wesleyan players performed a scene from next month’s Theatre Wesleyan production of the comedy.  

The scene was performed for students in a Tudor-Stuart History class who were examining the Elizabethan and Jacobean culture of seventeenth-century England. After the performance, theatre professor Dr. Connie Whitt-Lambert spoke to the students about the evolution of religious plays and theatre in Tudor England and answered student questions.
