SUMMER SHAKESPEARE INTENSIVE

Immerse yourself in the study of classical theatre, language and performance technique. Participants in Theatricum’s Shakespeare Intensive are actors, teachers & lovers of Shakespeare who leave this invigorating program inspired, confident and rededicated.

For five weeks this summer an intimate group of individuals (14-18 students) are led by experts in the study of: Voice & Speech (Linklater, Fitzmaurice, Rodenberg, etc.) * Alexander * Movement (Laban, Viewpoints, Period, etc.) * Fencing * Stage Combat * Scansion * Text * Rhetoric * Elizabethan Life/History * Elizabethan Music * Elizabethan Dance

These techniques are applied to scenes and monologues hand-picked for you by Artistic Director, Ellen Geer and Education Director, Emeritus Susan Angelo and directed by leading company artists. Scenes and monologues are performed at a culmination for invited guests presented during the last day of class.

Theatricum’s Shakespeare Intensives are open to dedicated beginners and professionals. They demand commitment, curiosity, stamina, and courage. In return, they will open your heart and begin (or rekindle) what may be the greatest love affair of your life – with Shakespeare, his beautiful characters, and his exquisite language.

SHAKESPEARE SCENE STUDY

Melora Marshall grew up in a theatre family. Performing. Always. As a professional actress, she has worked at the Mark Taper, South Coast Repertory, San Diego’s Old Globe, The Ahmanson, and, of course, Will Geer’s Theatricum Botanicum which is her artistic (and literal) home. She is a founding member of the Theatricum and serves as an actress, teaching artist, and active member of the company. For students in this class Melora seeks to develop a true sense of themselves as actors and to allow, through the classics, an outlet for that sense of self. The scenes and monologues are a conduit for that self-expression. Through solid techniques of acting Shakespeare honestly, clearly, with passion; interpreting his characters; building a repertoire; working a full spectrum of material the artist grows in confidence and experience.
