For performers eager to deepen their acting training, this introductory Shakespeare class gives students the skills they need to take their classical performance work to the next level.

We will delve into the core of classical acting technique by examining scenes and monologues carefully selected from Shakespearean literature. While rehearsing scenes, students learn to research and explore their character, balance logic with imagination, identify their character’s journey, collaborate with scene partners, and rehearse productively. Scene work will be augmented with linguistic study that also teach acting skills: clarity of thought and action, commitment to choices, active listening, and responding while in character. The result is bold, confident and clear acting!
