Shakespeare Sonnets to Perform


Sixteen Shakespeare sonnets, chosen for their simplicity. Ready to print and distribute to your class right away—also includes translations!

Here are sixteen of the most well-known and easy-to-understand sonnets. Shakespeare wrote 154 sonnets in all, but this collection focuses on the ones that are most accessible to student actors. They are ready to print and distribute to your students, and they include translations! Also included are six activities in which to use the sonnets.

Shakespeare sonnets are in the public domain, and you can find these on your own. But it took many hours of reading through the sonnets to find the ones that students would be most likely to resonate with or understand. On Drama Notebook, the work is done for you, saving you precious planning time.
