(a Shakespeare class for Shakespeare lovers and their spouses, siblings, friends, Romans, countrymen.)

Ages 18+*

*this is a class for adult students, but if one of the actors in your pair is a current or former

Company-level student at the Studio, they can join us as long as their scene partner is a parent or guardian!

Tuesdays 6:00-8:30PM

January 26th-March 2nd, 2021

$125.00 per person (we can bill your pair separately or together)

Follow us unto the breach as we take you through the steps of understanding and enjoying the nuances of Shakespeare’s text, while stretching your acting muscles, and building the confidence to fearlessly perform a two-person scene with someone in your social bubble.


When you register, we’ll find out from you what kind of relationship you want to play onstage with your scene partner. Always wanted to play Romeo and Juliet with your spouse? Have you got a favourite cousin who would make the perfect Celia to your Rosalind? Got a complicated relationship with your father and can relate all too well to Cordelia and King Lear? We’ll find the perfect scene and teach you how to break it down into thoughts, dive deep into its imagery, and use professional acting techniques to express yourself!


If you can’t get manipulate/cajole/convince someone in your life to sign up with you, don’t worry! We’ll pair you up with someone else taking the class solo, and stage your scene so you stay 6 feet from one another.


January 26th - March 2nd, 2021

*Program requires a minimum number of participants to run, class size will be limited to 12 students.




$125.00 + HST = $143.75 per person
