DAY 1 – ELIZABETHAN HISTORY & TECHNIQUES: Build your basic knowledge of Shakespeare’s texts, how his verse serves you as an actor, and how The Lord Chamberlain’s Men would have worked with the text in rehearsal. Improve your comprehension, natural verse reading, and refresh your approaches to text in this introduction.

DAY 2 – MUSICALITY & SHAKESPEARE’S TEXTS: Develop your skills for easy, natural verse delivery using musical methods and tools. Find freedom and connection through verse as you discover how your natural voice dynamics can work with Shakespeare’s texts to achieve complex and truthful storytelling.
