Winter 2017 – The Studio Classes
School’s Out Shakespeare (S.O.S.)
When the school calendar came out, you saw the “No Classes” dates and thought you’d line up something for the kids to do, right? Something more than staying at home and playing video games? Something more than accompanying you to work, yes?
Let them spend a day – or Spring Break – performing a little Shakespeare!
Chesapeake Shakespeare Company invites elementary, middle and high school students to our downtown theater for a day of monologue and scene study, and games, too! Our teaching artists lead acting exercises that keep students on their feet, laughing, and stretching their imaginations. Pack a lunch.
Dates: April 17, May 19
Fee: $40 per day
Saturday High School Corps (March 11-May 13)
For ages 16+, rehearsing and performing an abridged Shakespeare play. Emphasis on language/voice alignment, character development, emotional commitment, and ensemble.
Dates & Time: Saturdays, 9:00am-1:00pm
Stage Combat for Beginners (TBA)
Students will learn to perform fundamental techniques in the eight basic “fight” disciplines recognized by the SAFD.

Styles of stage combat to be covered will include Unarmed/Hand to Hand, Rapier and Dagger, Knife, Single Sword/Swashbuckling, Broadsword, Sword and Shield, Smallsword, and Quarterstaff.
Dates & Times: TBA
