Have you ever felt intimidated by the thought of working on a Shakespearean play or monologue?  Has that fear kept you from auditioning for a show you wanted to be in? If the answer is yes, you’re not alone. Many actors, even actors with years of experience, feel intimidated by Shakespeare and if you are one of them, you are missing out on the experience of working with some of the most iconic characters and stories in the history of the theater. 

 

In this class, you will use your Meisner Technique training to work with monologues and scenes from Shakespeare’s comedies and tragedies. 

 

Actors who have completed 3 sessions of professional Meisner Technique training are eligible to enroll.
