The Atlanta Shakespeare Company at the New American Shakespeare Tavern Education Department is very excited to announce our second annual Shakespeare Intensive for Teens. This four-week, audition based training program for students in rising 9th grade through rising college freshmen (currently in 8th through 12th grade) will focus on the skills needed to study and perform Shakespeare, and will include instruction in text work, vocal and movement techniques, stage combat, and Elizabethan madrigal singing. In addition to the classes, students in the program will also rehearse and perform a full-length play by Shakespeare. The play will be performed at the fruition of the three weeks at the New American Shakespeare Tavern, in downtown Atlanta. The rehearsal process will be a fast paced, professional-style experience.
Applications are being accepted NOW and the deadline for applications is January 20th.
Auditions will be January 27 and 28.
Tuition is $850. Talent and need based scholarships are available.
