Shakespeare is a frightening name to many. People assume it means complex archaic language that will be hard to understand. This course will unlock those “complex” concepts and give you the tools to own not only Shakespeare’s language but any text you have to memorize and perform whether it be a toast at a wedding, a presentation at work, or a Shakespeare monologue for an audition.
Bring language to life through fun physical exercises
Master Shakespeare through text exercises
There are many benefits to knowing how to perform Shakespeare. You will become much more comfortable with public speaking. You will be given exercises to conquer stage fright. You will never be afraid of the name Shakespeare again and will be able to fully enjoy his plays and the poetic language that makes him the greatest writer in the English language.
Most Shakespeare programs or classes will be very time consuming and costly and usually require an audition to participate. I have culled all of these techniques from 7 years of acting training, 20 years as a professional actor, and 6 years as a teacher of acting and Shakespeare. I have created a course that is not only effective in teaching the student how to perform Shakespeare but also a lot of fun!

I grew up in the Pacific Northwest. I have been a professional actor for the last 20 years of my life. I've acted in 86 plays, 25 of which have been Shakespeare. I have played roles from Richard III to Oberon in A Midsummer Night's Dream. I have taught Acting, Shakespeare, Writing, and Critical Reading at the middle school, high school, and college level. I currently live in Los Angeles and surf. If you want to know more about me as an actor, visit my website. Thanks!
