Advanced Shakespeare Workshop

4-week session: July 11-Aug 5!

The Advanced Shakespeare Workshop is our conservatory-style program for ages 14-18.

Enrollment in this program requires previous acting experience and a successful audition. (Returning ASW actors are not required to audition - simply email us to request the enrollment link.)

Intensive voice, movement, text, and monologue work are the hallmarks of this program. Actors will take a deep dive into the themes and language of Shakespeare and engage in a thorough examination of character motives and objectives. The program culminates in an hour-long performance (title and director TBA), to which family and friends are invited.


Please email a video audition consisting of a 1 - 2 minute Shakespeare monologue, preferably shot waist up or full body with good lighting and sound. We will contact you for an interview. Submissions will be considered in the order that they are received. Past ASW students do not need to send a video but should send an email expressing their interest.
NOTE: Enrollment capacity for this program is limited to 15.
