Shakespeare Performance Program

Join us for a fun and exciting program of rehearsing and performing an edit of one of Shakespeare’s plays. Our script is edited from the original text keeping the Elizabethan English.  Through physical and theatrical exercises, students will learn how to create and develop a character, understand Shakespeare and use their voices and bodies to tell this great story.  We’ll bring it all together as we prepare for live performance with  stage combat! This class is a safe and supportive atmosphere where students are encouraged to make bold acting choices while learning teamwork and gaining confidence.  All students will get a speaking role involving lines that will need to be memorized on schedule. Roles range in size (small, medium and large) and will be cast in consideration of class size, production needs and student preference. In the final weeks, we meet twice a week and the performance day requires an additional daytime tech rehearsal usually running 3 hours.
