Description: “All the world’s a stage,” says the melancholy Jacques in Shakespeare’s As You Like It. Don’t you want to be ON that stage? In this 10-week class, students will stage an abridged version of the comedy, As You Like It, while learning about blocking, costumes, Shakespeare’s language, and character work.

Teacher: Sean Scrutchins
Dates: Tuesdays, September 8-November 10
Times: 4:30 - 6:00 p.m.

The best way to grow as a performer is to get a play up on its feet. In this class, we will tackle Shakespeare's Antony & Cleopatra, with a culminating performance on November 10.  Students will work on cutting the play, developing characters, designing costumes and props, and even directing scenes.  This class is designed for young actors who love to perform, and who want to learn more about the process of staging a play. An excellent option for students who have already trained with Camp Shakespeare, and wish to gain more experience with Shakespeare. 
Tuition: $200 (scholarships available)

In this acting class for adults you can reap the benefits of CSF actor Anne Sandoe and Shakespeare scholar Shirley Carnahan’s extensive experience as they introduce you to voice, text, and movement techniques that professional actors use to create compelling Shakespeare performances. The 8-week course will culminate in a final showing of monologues and scenes. No prior experience necessary. Students from the spring 2015 class are encouraged to join us again.
