Shakespeare Sessions

Shakespeare Sessions


“Somehow all the sounds that Shakespeare uses are integral to the meaning. That's why you have to capture the very sound of Shakespeare to fully understand the feelings underneath.” - Cicely Berry, The Royal Shakespeare Company

Shakespeare Sessions is a course for Darlo Drama’s students, professionals and actors who have studied elsewhere but are wanting to improve their classical acting skills.

Shakespeare demands your voice, heart and mind to be firing together. This course will be an introduction to speaking Shakespeare clearly, connected to your voice, thoughts and emotions. Voice coach Amanda Stephens-Lee, will help you release your resonant voice and any fear of Shakespeare to help you to be fully in the moment and present.

This course will suit students who are keen to: have some fun learning to understand and use their voices powerfully, lift their acting to the next level, overcome any fear of Shakespeare, have a Shakespearean monologue ready for auditions, or further develop their experience working on Shakespearean texts.

The first half of the course involves lots of playful explorations of your voice and Shakespeare’s language whilst working on a monologue of your choice. We’ll also look at the writing styles employed by Shakespeare and how this releases the character. Each student will then have the opportunity to work their monologue masterclass style front of the group. The second half of the course is working on scenes from Shakespearean plays, culminating in a group performance at our school to freinds, family and students.
