Shakespearean Acting

Single Semester Course

This fun and fast-paced class guides our students through a lively, goal-oriented rehearsal process leading to a deep understanding of Shakespeare. In this class, the stepping-stones to character, coded into the work by Shakespeare himself, are clearly laid out, explained, and adapted to a modern rehearsal process. It will teach each student how to make bold choices rooted in the text, from staging to speech and actions. This method will give the student a definitive advantage in working with classical texts as well as contemporary works. Prerequisite: Theater One or another approved Acting class
