SHAKESPEARE INTENSIVE FOR TEENS
July 9, 2018 - August 5, 2018
The Fern Shakespeare Company’s month long performance intensive for high school age teens is a training program, similar to those that professional actors use, to improve their own skills.
The fast rehearsal process, similar to that of our professional company at the Tavern, will give you the confidence and skill to make quick, bold acting choices, and will stretch your creative wings!
The Intensive begins July 9th and culminates in a full production of William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream on August 4th and 5th.
This program is for rising high school freshman through rising college freshman. Days Last from 10-5 Weekdays.
Students will take classes from our professional company members in the morning break for lunch (lunch not provided) and rehearse in the afternoon.
- Shakespeare Text Performance
- Stage Combat
- Movement and Acting
While this is not a program that students will have to audition to join, there will be a specific audition day for students to come deliver monologues so that we may see where they will fit best within the show.
Our goal is to find the best role for the students, not the other way around. We focus our efforts on the educational process and finding individual victories for each student.
This may mean that the student wants to focus on delivering an iconic speech well, or maybe they want to learn more about Shakespeare in production. Their goal may perhaps be as simple as overcoming their fear and standing on stage in front of an audience.
We want every student to shine and find their own personal victories as well as learn to come together as a cast to deliver an excellent finished product.
Whether your child is interested in making a career in theater, or simply enjoys being on stage for fun, this is an excellent program that gives every student the tools they need to succeed.
Tuition is $650 per student. We can accommodate a maximum of 24 students.
