Shakespeare Academy @ Stratford
Stratford, CT 06615
Shakespeare Academy @ Stratford seeks early-career, college-attending or college-aged actors to join their 2020 Summer Ensemble! Now in its seventh year, this six-week residential intensive summer theater program combines rigorous training, ensemble collaboration, and the opportunity to rehearse and perform two Shakespeare plays in repertory. During the program, students will work, play, and live together as a collaborative ensemble, as well as taking master classes in a variety of disciplines—from Voice and Text to Alexander Technique, Clown, Stage Combat, and Lucid Body—led by internationally recognized instructors and professional artists. The program culminates in over a week of vibrant, professionally designed site specific performances for the public.
This summer, Artistic Director Sara Holdren will direct Troilus and Cressida, and Resident Director Benjamin Curns will direct As You Like It. Both plays are performed in repertory as part of a ten-day festival on the historic grounds of the former American Shakespeare Festival Theater in Stratford, CT.. The program dates are June 18th-August 3rd.
