Our annual Shakespeare performance workshop, Getting Shakespeare Off the Shelf, gives participants the opportunity to prepare and perform scenes from Shakespeare in a relaxed setting.
We are joined this year by special guest facilitator Kathryn Walsh, a director and text coach who has worked with theaters all over Chicago and has worked extensively on Shakespeare’s plays. You can learn more about her at: kathrynwalshdirector.com.
After the group workshop, participants will break down into small groups to rehearse a scene from our next summer Shakespeare play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. No preparation, experience, or memorization is necessary. At the end of the workshop, each group performs their scenes for the others.
This annual tradition is fun for everyone and a great way to get to know Shakespeare a little bit better. Please register at the link above so that we know how many participants to prepare for.
