Year 7-9 Shakespeare Intensive Drama Workshop @ ATYP

“I know I’m meant to enjoy Shakespeare but I find it hard to understand.” Sound familiar? Don’t worry you’re not alone. In this intensive workshop you’ll work with an experienced Shakespearean actor and ATYP tutor to help you uncover the tools that will help Shakespeare make sense to you. Learn some of the great speeches, examine some of the classic scenes and unlock the endless potential that is found in Shakespeare’s work. There is a reason he is considered the greatest of all time so join us and find out why. Participants will explore the language and meaning of Shakespeare’s work, rehearse scenes and perform with direction. Most auditions require a Shakespearean monologue – this session will give participants feedback and new methods for performance.

The Australian Theatre for Young People (ATYP) is the national youth theatre company. In addition to presenting award-winning performances featuring talented young people, they also offer high quality drama classes throughout the year, including the school holidays.

In the ATYP school holiday drama workshops, young people from Kindergarten to Year 12 will make new friends, learn about performing, gain confidence and most importantly have a ton of fun in a safe and inspiring environment.

In the upcoming Sept/Oct 2020 school holidays younger (K-6) participants can solve a mystery at the zoo, save a show from imminent disaster or delve into one of our award winning scripts to create their own production. Older students can deep dive into short film making, Shakespeare or sharpening their audition techniques.

And there’s so much more to discover – just jump on the ATYP website.

They are delighted to be offering face to face classes again at our conveniently located workshops for young people based in Sydney. ATYP offers before and after class care for kids in K-6 and is a COVID safe business.

So don’t hesitate! Early bird discounts are available until 14 September and ATYP is a registered NSW Creative Kids provider. They can’t wait to see you during the holidays for some drama inspired fun.
