The Baron’s Men Theatre Troupe is hosting our annual Summer Youth Workshop for area youth ages 9-14. This educational opportunity is unique in its focus on understanding the original practices of Shakespeare’s drama using the different theatrical lenses available to actors on the Shakespearean stage. We explore the language of Shakespeare, the culture of Elizabethan costuming, Elizabethan set design, and prop utilization. This is all done in a scaled reproduction of Shakespeare’s own theatre.
The staff include award winning costumers, professional actors, researchers, and professional educators. The staff and students will collaborate in the planning and production of our Summer Youth Workshop production of A Comedy of Errors on the Friday morning after their week of intensive theatrical training. The students will have rehearsed their monologues, explored death scenes, been introduced to stage combat, and learned the art of vocal projection in this unique outdoor venue…a truly memorable event!
