Shakespeare Workshop

Limit 25 Attendees

Shakespeare Workshop
The Olathe Community Theatre Association will be hosting a workshop designed to help actors who are new to working with classical language or those who simply want a refresher.  This workshop will focus on Shakespearean acting techniques and getting through the barriers of unfamiliar language and verse.  Some of the specific techniques will include tricks to get the most out of the “musical” elements of Shakespeare’s writing, how to approach verse (rhymed and unrhymed), how to work with the text to ensure you are conveying the meaning clearly, and more. 
Due to space and time constraints, the workshop will be capped at 25 attendees.  It is recommended that those planning to audition for Much Ado About Nothing who have little or no experience performing Shakespeare attend this workshop, but it is not required.  ATTENDANCE AT THIS WORKSHOP WILL NOT GUARANTEE YOU A ROLE IN MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING.


Olathe Community Theatre Association (500 E. Loula St., Olathe, KS)
DATE:  Saturday, June 23
TIME:  1:00 pm to 4:00 pm
COST:  $5 per person

MATERIALS NEEDED:  Something to write on and something to write with.  If you have a Shakespearean monologue that you would like to work on, bring it with you as well.  It is likely that we will focus on pre-determined selections, but there may be time and opportunity to work on individual items as well.

RSVP:  You can RSVP in two ways.  You can respond as attending this event on Facebook, or you can e-mail David Martin directly at dmartin922@gmail.comSince this event will be capped at 25 attendees, please be respectful of that and only RSVP if you intend on coming (or cancel if you know you cannot attend after reserving a spot).  Since there is no logical method for early payment, a reservation holds a spot for you and payment will be collected on the day of the event.

You can also e-mail David Martin if you want more detailed information on the content that will be offered in this workshop. 

Attendees should expect to stay the full three hours.
