NOTE: This will be a special online version of the class, with class meetings taking place on Zoom each week. For work on scenes toward the end of the class, each participant will have the choice to continue working online or do a limited amount of in-person work (provided that we can match up scene partners for in-person work).
Any in-person work will be held at the Just BeCause Center, 1013 W. State Street, and will strictly follow all recommended health and safety protocols regarding face coverings, social distancing, etc.
This is ISC's advanced acting class, aimed at actors who have some experience and/or training (but not necessarily in Shakespeare).
The goal of this class is to help actors develop the skills to approach any Shakespearean role with confidence. The focus will be on:
Actors will practice each step of the process in the real-world context of work on a specific character and scene.
“A super-enjoyable, very challenging, immersive college-level seminar

"Wonderful and fun...I loved the handouts and walking away with practical tools that I can use from here on out. The aspect of going from “being hired” to “performance day” with all the steps in between, was very helpful
and made the process seem less daunting."
We’ll also cover some practical topics such as:
Some out-of-class preparation and line memorization will be necessary.
Actors who have taken the class before are welcome to take it again at a discounted price to work on different characters and scenes. If this applies to you, please e-mail us for more information.
