This class is held in our studio in Washington Township.

This class introduces the serious young actor to the world of Shakespeare. Using script analysis, imagination, and creativity, every student will gain an understanding of the text and use scene study, vocal work, and acting exercises to not only understand the meaning, but the power of Shakespeare's words. Through extensive scene work, students will begin to dig beneath the surface of the text allowing them to approach, connect, and perform Shakespeare’s works with confidence.
