Shakespeare Lives: A 10-day Workshop by Shakespeare Troupe of South Florida
Shakespeare Lives, an intensive 10-day workshop created by Shakespeare Troupe of South Florida, will offer students ages 13 – 22 the opportunity to study many facets of classical acting. Classes will take place at Sol Theatre in Boca Raton from July 24th through August 4th. The program is spearheaded by Shakespeare Troupe founder Peter Galman.
Professional actors will conduct master classes, teaching the principles of vocal projection, diction, text analysis, verse management, character portrayal, and self-staging techniques. The workshops – open to a maximum of 20 students – will culminate with a staged reading of scenes from Shakespeare showcasing the trainees’ development as classical actors, and will be open to the public. Each student will take away a classic monologue to use in auditions.
Fellow Shakespeare Troupe teaching artists, who specialize in voice, movement, and music will join Galman in conducting the 5-hour sessions.
“More workshops and classes are in the works for actors of all ages,” Galman says. “And we are pleased to announce they will take place in our new home, Boca Raton’s Sol Theatre.”
Tuition for the 10-day Shakespeare Lives workshop is $250. Students will be accepted through audition or a self-tape submission.
Sol Theater is located at 3333 North Federal Highway, in Boca Raton (33431).
