Improvised Shakespere Workshop Sunday at Magnet

by Ben Whitehouse.

Was pretty excited to sign up for this class over at Magnet Theater and as there is still a spot available before Sunday’s class, I thought I would bring it to your attention, if you didn’t know about it already. Forsooth!

Lawrence Olivier Hamlet


Take a risk! Learn how to create a fully improvised story using the language and themes of William Shakespeare! We’ll explore the use of heightened emotional responses, rich character subtext, finding the game within a scene, and developing a sense of play. Our class will be filled with power struggles, star-crossed lovers, sprites, kings, queens, princesses, sword-play, rhyming couplets, asides, insults, persons in disguise and all that we’ve come to expect from the pen of the Great Bard. One day workshop. Limit 16 students. Pre-requisite: Level One or equivalent experience.
