2020 Workshops for Adults

Shakespeare Off the Page - REMOTELY

Shakespeare Off the Page - REMOTELY

The nerdy-coolest book club / geek session in town invites participants to step into the world of Shakespeare’s texts.

***In consideration of the health of our participants, and in accordance with CDC guidelines, these sessions will move online. When you register, we’ll send information about how to join us remotely, via the Zoom virtual meeting program.***

We’ll choose a play that’s going to be on our stage, or something that’s of general interest, and do a 3-workshop series with Gregory Maupin, our resident dramaturg and company actor.



Saturdays, March 21 and 28, 1:00pm – 4:00pm

For the first spring session, we’ll be looking at HAMLET, a super-trashy tale of revenge, political assassination, the supernatural, fake insanity, real insanity, and some light tutoring in Performance Studies. A third date on which we’ll all go see Kentucky Shakespeare’s parks tour of HAMLET will be decided by the group.
Much Ado About Nothing
Saturdays, April 4 and 11, 1:00pm-4:00pm
For the second spring session, we travel to Messina for the tale of the bickering wits Beatrice and Benedick. Much Ado was in our summer season 2017, and it was recently a part of Virtual Shakespeare in the Park, the Friday evening encore presentations of recent productions streamed online. The third session, at a time to be determined, we will watch the HD recording of that performance.
Henry V
Saturdays, April 18 and 25, 1:00pm-4:00pm
For the final spring session, we’ll be digging into HENRY V and its shady politics, its gorgeous English, its terrible French, and Shakespeare’s use of history, both accurate and in-, to tell a story that’s never quite for or against war. We’ll choose a third meeting time to go see the show during its run in Kentucky Shakespeare’s summer season.

Stage Combat

Stage Combat

Thank you to our February 2020 Stage Combat class participants! The group had a look behind the scenes and learned to fight like the pros at Kentucky Shakespeare with Fight Director Eric Frantz and actor/Director of Education Kyle Ware . They were guilded through the moves and techniques used to fight for stage and screen as well as some acting tips to help make it all look good.

Check back for future workshop!
