Shakespeare Players

For ages 8-12

Young people become confident with Shakespeare’s world, language and characters as they learn how to interpret a role with technique and courage. Classically trained professional actors assist the players in their physical, vocal and emotional transformations.

All Shakespeare Players teaching artists are classically trained professional actors and have performed Shakespeare both on and off Broadway and in regional theaters across the country.

In addition to core teaching staff, in Shakespeare Ensemble we introduce a roster of exciting guest teachers who will use their specific expertise (Text, Comedia dell Arte, Stage Combat) to enrich our rehearsals.

Our Shakespeare Players programming meets in Brooklyn Heights for Winter 2019 and at Avenues: The World School.
