FAQs

Q. What goes on in a virtual workshop?

A. You begin with a vocal warmup, which includes breathing and sounding exercises focussing on vowel sounds and articulation. Then, you will learn how to break down specific text for clues on how to play a scene or soliloquy. Once you find out what Shakespeare intended, you add your talent to breathe life into the character.

Q. How do I participate?

A. Contact Shakespeare Troupe Founder Peter Galman to discuss your level of commitment. The email is anon@shakestroupe.org. You can also consult the ST Events section to get involved.

Q. What does it cost?

A. $150 gets you the key to the online room and 15 weekly sessions. You'll be able to review each workshop on a recorded video. The workshops are not a guarantee for getting cast in an ST event, however.

Q. How do I book a virtual production and workshop use for my school or class?
