“Acting Shakespeare” Workshops

Posted on August 21, 2017 in General News, Member News

September 11 and 12, 6:00–10:00 pm

Are you interested in auditioning for Romeo and Juliet but wonder if you’re up to it? Shakespeare’s poetic language presents special challenges when bringing it to life on stage.

Our guest professional director, Elizabeth Hobbs, is offering two four-hour workshops on Acting Shakespeare. You will be introduced to speaking Shakespearean text in an active and playable manner. We will look at

  • iambic pentameter
  • blank verse
  • resources to understand the text
  • how to speak poetry in a way that makes sense to an audience.

Preregistration is required. There is room for 15 participants in each workshop so don’t delay signing up. Priority will be given to those who are considering auditioning for Romeo and Juliet. There is no cost for Shuswap Theatre members and the cost for non-members is the price of a membership ($10 for adults, $7 if you’re 18 or under. Buy your membership now. After purchasing your membership (if applicable) then complete the following form.
