The new Shakespeare Workshop program is designed to help introduce students to classic text integrating acting, voice, and movement. Over the course of the two-week workshop, students attend a morning class each day with the Lead Instructor, Denise Bessette, which consists of warm-up exercises for voice and movement then a concentration on acting class/rehearsal of monologues and scenes from the canon of Shakespearean plays in combination with the reading and discussion of two texts: the Shakespearean tragedy ROMEO AND JULIET and the comedy, AS YOU LIKE IT. At the end of the two-week session, students will perform at least one monologue and one scene for invited family and friends. They will be asked to provide minimal costume suggestions and simple props. The performance is done without a set, sound or stage lighting in order to feature the actors’ work.
