Shakespeare Scene Study
Intensive work on iconic characters and scenes from the world’s greatest plays. Attention to all aspects of playing Shakespeare, including which aspects of contemporary acting technique can be transferred and which can't, as well as issues unique to the work of the Bard. Students will explore Shakespeare's text with specific rehearsal techniques between classes each week, with a focus on exploiting Shakespeare's many clues to internal and external action. For students with some scene study experience, but a love of Shakespeare or a strong desire to learn would be a fine substitute for any particular experience in Shakespearean acting.
Online Class: Our Winter 2021 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. Winter 2021 financial aid applications are due by January 4, 2021.
