‘Speak the Speech’ (Hamlet, 3.2.1-36)
This class offers an introduction to the Academy and instills basic acting and techniques using monologues and scenes from Shakespeare’s plays. We provide each student with a guide to the performance of Shakespearean drama. Voice and movement work will accompany a literary understanding of the texts.
Two classes are offered, one for ages 10-12 and another for 13-15 year-olds. Each class size will not exceed 1o students.
This is a month-long class. Each class runs two hours, from 10am-12pm with a short break in between. Dates are on Saturdays: October 4, 11, 18 and 25. The location is East Street Performance Theatre, 47 East Street in Hadley, Mass. The cost for the class is $200 and will cover all materials.
This is a serious acting class. We ask that students be committed to the time and work involved, with the intention that they attend each class. No prior acting experience is necessary, but students should have the ability to focus and memorize small passages. This will be both fun and rewarding.
Space is limited and will be offered based on date of application receipt. A partial cost of $50 must accompany the registration.
Please mail your registration form and check to: Hampshire Academy of Dramatic Art, 457 Steady Lane, Ashfield, MA 01330.
