Weekly Term 2 Acting Course for 15 - 18 yr olds
Calling all young actors aged 15-18! Join the Revels Acting Ensemble’s ‘Playful Shakespeare’ weekly class where you will have the unique opportunity for two hours every Saturday morning to enter the world of Shakespeare and his works, developing your skill as a young performer by discovering tools to unpack the text and bring his work to life.
Course will focus on:
Importance of breath and volume in the space
Status of characters, placing lines in specific sections of the Globe and passing the baton to include the audience in the action of the play.
Week 10 will culminate in the students taking to the stage at Pop-up Globe to show their newfound skills and perform their own take on a Shakespearean classic for family and friends.
