SOLVE THE SHAKESPEARE PUZZLE WITH ASC’S ENGAGING VIRTUAL WORKSHOP SERIES

Join the Education Team as we take the practices of the rehearsal room and introduce them to students in our workshops.  We’ll help them break Shakespeare’s text into pieces and then put them back together to discover character, narrative, and compelling moments. While they knit the pieces together, students will gain ownership of Shakespeare and know that Shakespeare is for now.

WHAT’S NEW?

You can now follow a THREAD (aka a theme, such as: “Historical,” “Textual,” “Practical,” or “Topical”) through 2 Shakespeare titles. Threads will expose you to new understandings of Shakespeare’s text at every turn.

Each week of each thread, we explore a different play to the fullest, through topics such as Rhetoric, Verse, Music, Dramaturgy, and more. A week consists of four classes, Monday through Wednesday from 3:00 to 5:00 PM beginning September 14. Every week culminates with our in-depth Directing workshop which allows you to apply what you learned with ASC actors.

Through this innovative new class format, you can:

  • Take a single course of your choice,
  • Weave through a single thematic thread for a two week-long course of study,
  • Spend a few weeks with your favorite play,
  • Or really dive-in to the experience and explore 4 thematic threads as they intertwine through 2 classic plays.
This flexible course of study can work for anyone interested in exploring Shakespeare’s text and practices through hands-on engagement and play. Sound fun? We think so too.
