Acting Shakespeare: Foundations

November 7 - December 12, 2021 (6 weeks)
Sundays 3-6 pm
Offered online via Zoom

This is a new class, aimed at actors who want to perform Shakespeare but who don't feel comfortable with the language. We'll focus on building confidence, solid technique, and a strong foundation for more advanced training (like our advanced Acting Shakespeare class) and performing Shakespeare.

Some of the topics we'll cover include:

  • reading and understanding Shakespeare
  • acting the language effectively
  • finding the character in the text
  • preparing a monologue
  • bringing a scene to life
  • auditioning for Shakespeare

Students should have some training or experience in acting, but not necessarily in Shakespeare. There will be some line memorization and work outside of class times required.

Space is limited, and registration closes on Thursday, November 4, 2021.

Discounted price for online class: $127 per person.
