No, we're not going to play rugby with the choristers. Rather, this course will provide a gentle introduction to performing Shakespeare. The class level is aimed for: actors who may not be as familiar with Shakespearean performance but would like to move into that area; beginning actors who are looking for some tips on performance; or persons with little to no experience but who enjoy Shakespeare's plays and have a vague desire to perhaps get on stage and declaim. The course will cover textual research, paraphrasing, and connecting the text to performance. Attendees can bring a monologue they wish to work on, or one will be provided, as it's more fun to learn by doing! At the end of the class, attendees will leave with some new performance resources, and hopefully the confidence to take the plunge with the Bard.
