“Speak the speech as I pronounced it to you, trippingly on the tongue.”

​For four hundred years, Shakespeare’s immortal words have had us rolling in the aisles, crying into our drinks, or contemplating life's great mysteries. Learn how to make Shakespeare’s language jump off the page and invoke delight or dole with theater legend and teacher extraordinaire KATE BURTON.

Over three Thursday afternoons you will learn how to demystify Shakespeare and his verse and find the internal truth of the character. By the end of the class, you will leave armed with the confidence in Shakespeare to take on any audition or performance.
