Course Overview

Shakespeare is arguably the greatest playwright of all
time. The aim of this week-long course is to make his work accessible to all. Through workshops and masterclasses, you will explore the vagaries and complexities of Shakespeare’s language, uncovering brilliant characters, fantastic stories and emotional realities.

This informative and popular course is open to anyone
over the age of 17 with an interest in acting, either as a
student, a professional or those who act ‘just for the
fun of it’!

The course culminates with a celebratory meal where you will have the opportunity to discuss the course and any future plans with teaching staff.

The Bristol Old Vic Theatre School is a leading British Drama School

Please be aware that rehearsals can sometimes overrun and continue longer than timetabled.

I’m constantly delighted by the talent, commitment and drive of our students. Their curiosity and joy in the work gives us all energy and keeps me on my toes! My goal is to ensure that their voices serve their acting - both in theatre and recorded media. They need to be able to project, learn accents, respond to a wide variety of texts and have a voice that is healthy and be able to sustain long tours and tough filming schedules. This involves them working extremely hard – but having fun as well. When the new students see the final year students in production for the first time I know they’ll come into class the next day fully understanding the high standard they’re working to achieve.
