SHAKESPEARE BOOK CLUB: Reading the Bard Aloud
NEW SESSION ADDED!
Wednesdays, 2:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. (8 Sessions)
Fee: $400 ($380 for subscribers and past students)
Designed for novice and early-level actors, this eight-week series provides a great introduction to (or review of) the intricacies of performing classic works. Classes begin with engaging theatre exercises to get everyone energized and focused on the work ahead. Early classes will cover the basic tools: how to dissect the language, and how to bring the text to life through behavior and honest character choices. The next few classes focus on group scenes providing a chance to perform within the safe and fun environment of the class. Final classes provide more individual opportunities for students to shine in smaller two to four person scenes. Some memorization is required for scene work.
