SHAKESPEARE SCENE STUDY

Dates TBA

Shakespeare Scene Study is designed for students with some Bard experience, whether at the Studio with Page’s Shakespeare Monologues or Shakespeare Levels 1 or 2, or in previous study. This course delves deeply into the demands of successfully interpreting Shakespeare’s characters and text through body, voice, and speech, and imparts techniques that will help actors make Shakespeare’s works accessible for all audiences.

Students will work on scenes in pairs, receiving in-depth constructive critiques from the teacher. The goals are to:

  • Mine the texts for hidden meanings, text clarity, and rhythm
  • Explore the full range of physical and vocal expression
  • Further unlock the text with advanced exercises to enhance the actor’s emotional life and imagination
  • Connect with and fully develop the Bard’s characters to truthfully share Shakespeare’s stories
  • Prepare to skillfully use Shakespeare in both audition rooms/Zooms and full productions

Shakespeare Scene Study meets online once a week for six weeks, and requires completion of Shakespeare Monologues, Shakespeare Levels 1 & 2, or equivalent.
