Weekend classes for ages 11-18
Saturday Upstart Crows is a physically and mentally engaging Shakespeare experience where students age 11-18 deepen their skills and knowledge through a comprehensive rehearsal process that explores language, history, voice, movement, text analysis, and play. This Spring’s class will include a particular focus on themes of Politics, Rhetoric, and Zero-Sum thinking as investigated in Julius Caesar.
As is the case with our Advanced Shakespeare Workshop program, the process culminates with a scenes and monologues showcase. Those who enroll early will have the opportunity to email us with material that you may be interested in. We’ll then then keep requested material in mind when selecting scenes and monologues for the performance.
