Adult and Teen Theatre Classes for Those Interested in Shakespeare

Periodically, we offer theatre workshops for a variety of age groups.  

Some of our workshops include those which will help you conquer your fear of Shakespeare.  We will give you tools to understand these famous, yet sometimes confusing, plays.  We will look at the history of William Shakespeare, his language and writing style and explore one of his plays.

“Though this be madness, yet there is method in it!”–Hamlet

Teachers who have specifically trained in classical Shakespeare works in London, New York, and Chicago, will lead groups and spend one-on-one time with each participant. We will help you learn in a safe and fun atmosphere.


You will leave with the confidence to read Shakespeare on your own, laugh when you go to the theatre (and not just because everyone else is) and maybe even audition for a show!

‘This is the long and short of it” –Merry Wives of Windsor

Our classes focus on:

  • Elizabethan England

  • Vocabulary

  • How Shakespeare tells a story

  • Scenes from famous plays

This is your chance to get rid of the fear, answer your questions, and finally truly enjoy the world‘s most famous plays ever written!

Now, you can tell someone:

“Thou art as loathsome as a toad!”—Trolius and Cressida … and know what it means!
