Shakesperience proudly offers Saturday and Summer Acting Intensives in our Waterbury Studio and beyond. We deliver 7-week sessions in winter, spring, and fall, with week-long sessions in summer. Our professional resident artists instruct students aged 7 to 17 in the Shakesperience Approach. Students learn to develop action and character through text within a strong, socially responsive ensemble that takes ownership of the work. Students show significant long-term behaviours, including literacy, public speaking, individual and group work ethic, and positive outlook, attitude and self-expression.
Additionally, we offer private acting classes for all ages in our studio. See below, or contact us for information. For Saturday classes, scholarships available for low & moderate income families.
Students will dive into performing this classic story of a shipwreck, separated twins, and mistaken identity. Our entirely virtual Spring Acting Intensives will consist of large and small group work, culminating in a recorded final performance for friends and family and an encore at the 36-hour Shakespeare-a-thon during Give Local.
