This Retreat is the perfect activity for actors, non-actors and all lovers of Shakespeare who are seeking a compact, but very enriching and immersive Shakespeare experience.
Weekend Shakespeare Retreat offers content similar to our very popular Summer Shakespeare Intensive, but conducted in one weekend! This Retreat is the perfect activity for actors, non-actors and all lovers of Shakespeare who are seeking a compact, but very enriching and immersive Shakespeare experience.
Workshops will unlock Shakespeare’s language through Scansion, Text and Rhetoric; open your breath and body with Voice, Speech, and Movement; and celebrate the arts with Dance, Performance, and Fencing. Our artistic Director, Ellen Geer, will hand pick a monologue or sonnet for you to use as you explore and engage.
Make a vacation out of it! Spend the weekend in beautiful Topanga Canyon, an oasis nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains. Breathe deeply under our canopy of California Live Oaks as you immerse yourself in Shakespeare’s exquisite language and characters. Stay at one of Topanga’s Award Winning B&B’s; explore the cuisine, discover local shops, and bike or hike trails to beautiful vistas in this very special community. Contact Adult Programs Manager Sarah Stone (email@example.com) for full details on accommodations, dining and activities in the canyon during your stay.
