WHY THIS WORKSHOP: It is our belief that one of the major obstacles facing performers of Shakespeare’s works is the lack of opportunity to participate in intensive text study in a group setting. For example, during the rehearsal process, time becomes a luxury and after a few days of working on the text, staging the play becomes a more urgent priority. We propose a program that will offer participants an opportunity to read the plays in a shared learning environment. It is our hope to attract participants of differing skill levels; from seasoned performers to people who have never opened a piece of Shakespeare in their lives. From these sessions participants will gain insight into different styles and techniques of scene study and character development. They will also have a chance to learn more about the historical context and social significance of the plays and participate in the never ending discussion that has surrounded Shakespeare’s works for centuries, “What does this line mean?” - – Bryan Webster
