Are you sad that you couldn't do Beth Burns' mind-blowing, world-expanding, toolbox-cramming Shakespeare workshops earlier this month?
I understand the impulse, but there's NO NEED! Because she's going to conduct more of them and soon!
Love Shakespeare, but don't know how to turn that love into a knockout performance? You should sign up!
Think you don't like Shakespeare? You should just sign up.
Think you're god's gift to Shakespeare? You should especially sign up.
So whatever your relationship is to the Bard, give yourself a gift and go, go, go!
Stay tuned to Hidden Room Theatre's facebook page for more information. I sincerely hope you get the chance to take this class from a truly gifted and inspiring director and Shakespearean coach.
Below is an excerpt from Hidden Room's press release about the most recent round (the workshops I just got to experience and loved):
Guided by Beth Burns, these weekend workshops offer actors increased skill, confidence, energy, and joy when performing Shakespeare.
Level 1 focuses on verse handling, making strong character choices from small textual clues, allowing the sounds of words to better inform choices, fresh-minting language, and monologue work.
Level 2 focuses on more advanced verse handling and character choices, prose handling, using rhetorical devices to your advantage, and scene work, especially for large (or problem) scenes.
