Shakespeare Workshops

Our flexible workshop program is ideal for teachers looking to supplement their Shakespeare curriculum. Living, Breathing Shakespeare introduces students to the actor's process—the technique employed by professional actors as they work to get to the heart of Shakespeare's text.

Through single or multiple workshops (led by Capital Classics' team of performers and educators), students will come to understand and appreciate Shakespeare as they step into the lives of his characters.

Capital Classics will design a curriculum based on a teacher's selected text, goals and schedule. The Living, Breathing Shakespeare program will:

  • de-mystify Shakespeare by actively involving students in the text through performance techniques
  • bring Shakespeare's language and characters to life through an in-class performance study
  • allow the students to experience Shakespeare's plays as performance vehicles
