Come join members of the Stanford Shakespeare Company and learn the basics of performing a Shakespeare scene! Shakespearean language can seem pretty difficult and intimidating when you read it in English class, but when you see it performed you can understand it. His tragedies can be sad and moving, and his comedies are filled with bad puns and ridiculous fight scenes. We will teach you how to use the text to inform your character and how to use your body to help tell the story. No acting experience is required, but a willingness to be silly is highly recommended.
