Winter Saturday Acting Classes
February 18, 2017 @ 9:30 AM - 1:45 PM
An event every week that begins at 9:30am on Saturday, repeating until February 18, 2017
Students are grouped by age for our winter classes. From 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM, the 7- to 11-year-old students receive an introduction to both classical literature and performing in front of a live audience through an adaptation of “Gulliver’s Travels” based on the script used by our professional actors. From 11:45 AM to 1:45 PM, the 12- to 17-year-old students focus on Shakespeare’s tragedy, Macbeth. Students will collaborate on a production of Macbeth as an ensemble utilizing the Shakesperience Approach to be performed for family and friends.
All students are instructed by our professional resident artists in the Shakesperience Approach. This method embodies the philosophy of the company and leads to a strong, disciplined ensemble, grounded in language and positive interaction, and creates art and educational activities of the highest quality. Students learn to develop action and character through text within a strong, socially responsive ensemble that takes ownership of the work. Students show significant long-term behaviors, including literacy, public speaking, individual and group work ethic, and positive outlook, attitude and self-expression.
