“Challenging, thought provoking, confidence building; interactive beyond my expectations”

– The Studio attendee

Bring the Globe Theatre into your home with this extended six-week online course running for three hours every Tuesday from 16 March to 20 April 2021.

Explore approaches to working with Shakespeare’s text each week through exercises, rehearsal tools and games providing an energised online learning experience, with sharpened focus on Shakespeare’s powerful language.

The course culminates in a presentation to the other participants, with feedback given by the course leader, and informed by their experience of working in our theatres.

This extended Stage One course is suitable for actors as an introduction to The Studio, or for those who are looking to extend their engagement with us. Sessions provide a supportive space to explore, play and connect creatively with peers, guided by our experienced Globe Faculty.
