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.

COURSE BREAKDOWN

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!

SOLO PARTICIPATION


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.
