This site has incredible visuals if you need them for content areas.  The readings could be difficult for many ESL/EFL students, but the text could be pasted into sites that simplify reading.  I believe I've scooped some of those sites in the past.

Shakespeare Comes Alive: Apps to Create Performance - AP Lit Help

Shakespeare Comes Alive: Apps to Create Performance - AP Lit Help | Creative Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it
Think back to your experiences learning Shakespeare when you were in high school. Rather than simply reading the play, the teacher probably told you that you would be performing it in class. While this sounds like it might be fun, it probably devolved into a few apathetic students standing at the front of the room reading in monotone voices.

Students learn Shakespeare when they perform Shakespeare. They understand his words when they can truly interact with them. Unfortunately, most of our students aren’t actors, and they really aren’t comfortable performing in front of their classmates. How can we get our students to engage with Hamlet & Macbeth in ways that won’t bore or embarrass them?

There are some amazing tools available for iOS devices that will allow your students to create projects that force them to connect with the text in fun and exciting ways.

Very good post... not only for those who want to get The Bard into our students' heads, but also for those who merely want to get their students into reading and acting!!

"A big challenge here, and I don't think anyone has solved it, is how do you give the audience a 360-degree choice, all the time," said creator Alex McDowell, "but whatever choice they make will contribute to a cumulative understanding of the story."
