About the event
Students meet at an accessible theater location in Boca Raton and train to do Shakespeare in an intensive 10-day workshop. Professional actors conduct master classes teaching the principles of vocal projection, diction, text analysis, verse management, character portrayal and self-staging techniques. Students plunge into a workshop of wonder, discovering in daily, 5-hour sessions, how to embody the stories of the world’s greatest poet and playwright. The group of a maximum 20 students showcases their development as classical actors with a staged reading of scenes from Shakespeare open to the public.
The program is led by Shakespeare Troupe Founder, Peter W. Galman, and fellow teaching artists of Shakespeare Troupe of South Florida who specialize in classical voice, movement and music. The novice actor is given a perspective on the belief systems of ancient cultures and social engineering of the Renaissance through which is found a connection to life today. Each student will take away a classical monologue to use in auditions. For High School Seniors auditioning this Fall for college conservatory programs that require a classical monologue, this workshop would be especially useful. The program culminates on Friday, August 4, at 6pm - 8pm, with a showcase of scenes and monologues that will be performed by the students, open to the public with friends, family, and industry people in attendance.
