Students in the Summer Shakespeare Intensive study classical theatre technique, voice, movement, and stage combat led by theatre professionals while rehearsing for two productions of Shakespeare’s plays. Throughout the Intensive, the students have the unique opportunity to study Shakespeare and see the productions of the Globe’s Shakespeare Festival, which runs concurrently with the program. Festival company members lend the students insights into the art of performing Shakespeare that the students then apply to their own performances of the Bard’s work.
