Summer Shakespeare Studio


The Old Globe’s Summer Shakespeare Studio is a four-week program that gives rising 9th – 12th graders and recent graduates a unique opportunity to not only develop foundational skills for reading, interpreting, and performing Shakespeare’s plays, but also to cultivate their own artistic voice through storytelling and creating original material.

Students receive an intensive curriculum of acting, movement, music, and text, as well as training in voice and speech and stage combat. Participants explore original writing as a part of understanding text and verse forms. There are also regular master classes with Globe artists and staff, many of whom are among the leaders in their fields. Students deepen their understanding and appreciation of Shakespeare’s writing and use his work as a model for investigating and engaging with their own experiences.

The final presentation at The Old Globe will combine scenes from Shakespeare’s Hamlet with original material generated by the students.
