This Advanced Long-Form Intensive is intended for advanced students who are looking to play with the theatricality, emotions, playfulness and poetry of the BARD.

– the richness, beauty and simplicity of the language;
– the boisterous comings and goings, and overall stage movement, that keep the story moving ahead in a dynamic fashion;
– the eccentricity and variety of the characters;
– the freedom to tell any kind of story within the Shakespearean framework (romance, mystery, crime, fantasy, etc.);
– the joy and momentum from working as a cohesive ensemble

Through working on these specifics of the Shakespearean genre and style, you’ll strengthen the skills that will serve you in any genre or format. Join Intensive instructor Tim Orr for this wild ride!
