New Spring 2024 Workshops

Saturday –  April 27

SHAKESPEARE CAN BE FUN!    (with Dave Clark)

The Art of Interpretation: Shakespearean language doesn’t have to be scary, it’s poetry and emotion on the page. Participants will explore basic text interpretation before moving into Shakespearean language through an exploration of his tragedy Macbeth. By isolating key scenes, they will experience Macbeth as a story, but also as a set of ‘flesh and blood’ characters. They will learn to interpret Shakespeare’s lofty language honestly and how to play his words for authentic emotion.  By the end of the workshop, we’ll have performed one of the Bard’s greatest plays (or at least the juicy parts) and met the world’s greatest writer. 


Saturday – May 4
