Summer Shakespeare

 

 

One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.

 
Each summer NGP conducts one and two-week theatre intensives open to youth ages 7-18. Our actors train in the disciplines of acting, voice, movement and stage combat. They develop a deep knowledge of and emotional connection to Shakespeare through the Intensive process.

The rehearsal process provides time for learning and understanding Shakespeare’s language, and for building the group dynamics essential to personal and group success. Students gain an understanding of Shakespeare’s world of theatre, as well as specific acting skills. Song, dance, and stage combat training will be applied as a daily activity. The Summer Shakespeare Intensives culminate in fully staged productions at the LITTLE GLOBE OUTDOOR STAGE.
