Haven't quite touched on theater yet, but you should start with the printing press. Talk about the availability of literature in the Renaissance period and the Middle Ages, and what kind of people were able to obtain them. Of course bring in Shakespeare's early life and how he began to start thinking of plays and who influenced him. There is actually an entire season of Terry Jones' Medieval Lives on youtube that helped a lot with my class discussions that I think would help you with all of your questions. It's interesting too, not boring at all. :)
