Summer Youth Workshop

The Baron’s Men is hosting our Summer Youth Workshop in July. Students will have an opportunity to experience the world of William Shakespeare and Elizabethan stagecraft tradition that the Baron’s Men is well known for.

Throughout the week of the workshop, students will experience:

                    • ♦ The language of Shakespeare – What is he really saying?
                    • ♦ High and Low Humor – Identification and delivery of a good pun
                    • ♦ Stage Movement – Navigating the Elizabethan thrust stage
                    • ♦ Death Scenes in Shakespeare – Die like a pro!
                    • ♦ Stage Combat – Believable fighting, none of the injury!
                    • ♦ Basic Costuming and prop making
                    • ♦ Students will put their new-found skills on display in a special, torch-lit performance on the final day of the workshop.
