Shakespeare Master Course
An intensive course in Shakespearean monologue performance, taught by a longtime member of the Shakespeare Theatre company. All aspects of Shakespearean acting will be addressed, with special focus on text interpretation, empowering the voice, and bringing contemporary acting skills to bear on classical material. No Shakespeare experience required.
Online Class: Our Late Fall classes will take place entirely online via Zoom. Classes require live participation at the scheduled times using your own device. Zoom is most effective when used on a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet. Students using a cellphone to access class are likely to experience reduced functionality that may limit their ability to participate fully in class. Please review the technical requirements necessary to take part in an online class before enrolling. If these requirements pose any difficulties for you, please let us know.
Financial Aid: In an effort to make more classes financially accessible to students during the COVID-19 crisis, we are offering more financial aid than ever. If attending our courses at this time at full price would be difficult for you, please apply for assistance by November 2, 2020.
