Whether you are preparing for auditions, brushing up your basics, or just dipping your toe in the water of Shakespeare, come learn a dynamic and visceral approach to Shakespeare’s text. Through group exercises and individual work, you will learn foolproof tools with which to approach Shakespeare’s text. As we isolate the tools, you can put them into your actor’s “toolbox” and have them at your disposal for auditions, rehearsals, and performances.
