For performers eager to deepen their acting training, this introductory Shakespeare class gives students the skills they need to take their classical performance work to the next level.
We will delve into the core of classical acting technique by examining scenes and monologues carefully selected from Shakespearean literature. While rehearsing scenes, students learn to research and explore their character, balance logic with imagination, identify their character’s journey, collaborate with scene partners, and rehearse productively. Scene work will be augmented with linguistic study that also teach acting skills: clarity of thought and action, commitment to choices, active listening, and responding while in character. The result is bold, confident and clear acting!
I just wanted to thank you and Traveling Players for all the training you guys have given me in the last three years. I got third place in my school’s Shakespeare monologue competition [as a freshman], and I give the credit ENTIRELY to the very worthy Traveling Players Ensemble. I love Traveling Players so much and I am glad to have met each and every person I’ve met there!
