Pam Farr Summer Shakespeare Studio

July 17 – August 14, 2017
(Performance Night: August 14, 2017 at 7:00 p.m.)

Donald and Darlene Shiley Stage
Old Globe Theatre
Conrad Prebys Theatre Center

Through the month-long Pam Farr Summer Shakespeare Studio, students receive an intensive curriculum of acting, movement, music, and writing classes as well as training in voice and speech, stage combat, and text. Master classes are offered with Globe artists and staff, many of whom are among the leaders in their fields. These instructors seek to deepen students’ understanding and appreciation of Shakespeare’s writing and to use his work as a model for engaging the students with their own experiences. The Studio also incorporates non-Shakespearean material, such as modern music, original texts, and the participants’ own freewrites, in which the group brainstorms topics essential to the story, then breaks out to discover different ways to express them.

The Pam Farr Summer Shakespeare Studio will run Monday – Friday, July 17 – August 14, and will culminate in a public performance on Monday, August 14 at 7:00 p.m. on the Donald and Darlene Shiley Stage in the Old Globe Theatre, part of the Globe’s Conrad Prebys Theatre Center. This unique performance combines Shakespeare’s words, today’s popular songs, and original material generated by the Studio’s company. Through language, music, movement, and puppetry, the ensemble members create an exploration of Shakespeare for the audience.
