Workshops for Adults
Shakespeare Off the Page
The nerdy-coolest book club / Shakespeare geek session returns with another read-it-aloud-then-chat-about-it session, this time with The Scottish (that’s Macbeth, just to be clear) right in time for Spooky Season™️. Not actors performing, but a bunch of people who enjoy Shakespeare and seeing how it feels to let it roll around the palate like fine wine. Join us, won’t you?
October 15 and 22, 2022
The play is available in various forms via CarmichaelsBookstore.com.
Now, for some reading Shakespeare brings back nightmares of that one ex-nun/former coach who taught Freshman English. But digging into these plays and treating them like the playscripts they are can be a lot of grown-up fun once you unlock some of the tricky bits in a casual, snack’n’chat, no-test-on-the-reading setting. So resident Kentucky Shakespeare actor/dramaturg (pronounced: professional nerd) Gregory Maupin will lead a group through these sessions that can help you get the most out of reading Shakespeare on your own, before a show/movie, or with a group of other weirdos who enjoy this kind of thing, too*.
*This is primarily a series aimed at normal, decent people, but actors are not unwelcome.
Here’s what some past participants had to say:
“Greg knows WAY too much to fit into 3 or 4 sessions, but…I am jazzed about further DIY exploration.”
- Schedule: October 15 and 22, 1:00pm-4:00pm
- Price: $60 for two-session workshop
