Elm Shakespeare Teen Troupe Program

You have something to say
...and Shakespeare gives you the best words to be heard. Immerse yourself in great theatre and become the Shakespearean actor you can be!


This weekend program combines training & rehearsal to build an acting ensemble and to create a fully-realized performance of a Shakespeare play! Saturday afternoons starting February 10th.

You’ll explore Shakespeare's language through Voice, Movement/Stage Combat, and Text/Acting, all under the guidance of our most experienced teaching staff. By the end you will have developed a fully-realized, embodied performance.
