Pam Farr Summer Shakespeare Studio 2021

We understand many spring and summer plans are being disrupted by the COVID-19 situation. Keeping in mind the safety of accepted students and staff, we have decided to offer Studio as an online program.

Apply Today

Applications are now available online for the virtual 2021 Pam Farr Summer Shakespeare Studio and will be accepted through Friday, April 2. The three-week program is a unique opportunity for rising 9th – 12th graders and recent graduates committed to developing foundational skills for reading, interpreting, and performing Shakespeare’s plays and cultivating their artistic voice through storytelling and creating original material.

Students will actively participate in an intensive curriculum of acting, movement, music, and writing classes and receive training in voice and speech, stage combat, and text. There will also be regular master classes with Globe artists and staff, many of whom are among the leaders in their fields. Students will deepen their understanding and appreciation of Shakespeare’s writing and use his work as a model for engaging with themselves and enriching their knowledge of the Bard.

The Pam Farr Summer Shakespeare Studio will run from July 12 to July 30 and culminate in an online Studio Showcase performance on Saturday, August 7, 2020, which will streamed on The Old Globe’s YouTube channel and on www.TheOldGlobe.org. This final presentation will combine Shakespearean scenes, soliloquies, and sonnets with original material generated by the students.

In our continuing effort to make theatre matter to more people, the Pam Farr Summer Shakespeare Studio is provided free of charge to all students thanks to our generous donors. Upon receipt of applications, live interviews will be scheduled between Monday, April 5 and Friday, April 23.

For more information on the program, please email Studio@TheOldGlobe.org.

The 2021 Pam Farr Summer Shakespeare Studio is generously supported by lead sponsors Pam Farr and Buford Alexander, with additional support by the Ann Davies Fund for Teaching Artists and The James Irvine Foundation. Digital programs at The Old Globe are supported in part by the Peggy and Robert Matthews Foundation.
