“The session was packed and varied which meant the value for money was excellent.”

– The Studio attendee

Bring our Elizabethan theatre into your home with this three-hour introduction to the principles of performance at the Globe.

Each online workshop starts with a virtual tour of the Globe Theatre and uses Zoom break out rooms to facilitate practical exercises in pairs and small groups.

Working online sharpens the focus on working with Shakespeare’s texts and using his powerful language to communicate without theatrical scaffolding.

Whether you are new to working with Shakespeare or have a lot of previous experience, these sessions provide a supportive space to explore, play and connect creatively with peers, guided by our experienced Globe Faculty.


Your ticket is valid for one individual to join the online workshop on one device.

You cannot book this workshop unless you have registered with The Studio at Shakespeare’s Globe and the ticket must be booked by the individual who will be participating in the workshop.
