Classes in Shakespeare will provide deep technical understanding that will then be given practical application, allowing students to find the freedom and energy of playing within structure. Clear connections will be made between Shakespeare’s text in play and the demands of Music Theatre performance, including active engagement with sound, rhythm, audience/actor relationship, the playing of action and a full and rich approach to character and storytelling.
