an action packed week with Shakespeare’s best larger than life comic characters

About the program

Give your children the freedom to explore as they play the fool and uncover their inner clown in an action packed week with Shakespeare’s best larger than life comic characters.

 

The Australian Shakespeare Company Actors, Directors and Educators offer a drama workshop environment giving young people the opportunity to build their own unique stepping stones to self-confidence.

 

Working with scenes for both the stage and screen, drama games, clowning, commedia dell arte, voice work, improvisation and stage fighting, the week builds towards a live showcase for family and friends.

 

Choose between the whole week or just a day or two! Unplug your children, disconnect the devices and connect them to live, interactive, creative development.

My daughter “so enjoyed her week and has not only learnt so much regarding performance but has also made some new like-minded friends.” “She really felt both a sense of achievement and motivation to continue her knowledge of the craft of acting, especially Shakespearean.”

I just love the language. I also love learning about the plays and having to learn lines. The tutors just make it so fun!”

 

Darcy – Aged 11

The plays are so different. Some are a bit the same, but each one is so unique. I love that the language is so different to now days. It’s so good to know why it’s important.

 

Daniel – Aged 10

I love the big range Shakespeare has! Comedies! Tragedies! These classes keep life in the plays and makes Shakespeare really fun!”
