Description: Groups of 12 to 16 students rehearse, exactly as do professionals, to complete scenes from Shakespeare’s plays linked by a common theme. Each day begins with a physical and vocal warm-up. Throughout the day students explore character, language and story through voice, movement, stage combat, improvisation and mask.

The exciting and challenging rehearsal process culminates in a performance for family and friends at a professional theatre in Toronto.

  • Comprehension of Shakespeare’s texts
  • Communication and analytical skills
  • Confidence and self-esteem
  • Cooperation and group work
  • Critical analytical skills
