In this intensive class, the next generation of classical actors will study Shakespeare technique, acting, voice, movement and learn the ins and outs of the theatre industry from Halifax’s theatre professionals. This pre-professional training program is perfect for students who are serious about theatre and are ready to take the next step. Directed by Shakespeare by the Sea’s Artistic Associate, Drew O’Hara, this three-hour, weekly class will culminate in a run of performances at the Park Place Theatre in the Spring of 2023. 

The Shakespeare Company program is an intensive, performance-based program. It provides meaningful practise, and as such, there is less time devoted to learning the basics of working with classical text. In order to have everyone working from a similar knowledge base, we also offer a Company Prep program. It is required for new Company Students at an additional cost of $100 + HST, and encouraged for students who have only been in Company for one year. Students who have been in Company for 2+ years are always welcome.

Prep Program: Wednesdays October 12 & 19, 5:00-8:00PM
