Workshops

Workshops in your classroom including an introduction to Shakespeare’s language, the world of the play and production specific discussion, are ideal for educators interested in a pre-show orientation prior to bringing students to our matinees. Southwest Shakespeare Company will work directly with each educator to customize a workshop that will work best for your classroom.

We take pride in knowing no matter what show you may have in your curriculum this year, we have the perfect match of teachers to augment your manner of teaching and material. Keeping with our mission of active learning and approaching Shakespeare’s plays as pieces meant to be performed, we encourage hands on learning and get excited about theatre games, student scene work and limited lectures.

Past workshop topics have included:

  • Scene Studies
  • Shakespeare’s Verse
  • Dramaturgical or Thematic Lessons on specific plays
  • Pre-show orientations
  • Stage Combat
  • Classical Audition Technique
  • Intro to Shakespeare
  • Shakespeare’s Staging Practices
  • And MORE!
