Get your Shakespeare on this summer with six weeks of scene study, text, and character analysis classes from Red Bull Theatre. The sessions will take place on six consecutive Mondays, July 20-August 24, from 11:30am-4:30pm.

Leading the course are four instructors who know a thing or two about working on the Bard: Patrick Page, whose Shakespearean acting credits include the roles of Hamlet, Richards II and III, Oberon, Henry V, Macbeth, and, later this summer, Cymbeline; Shapespeare Society artistic director Michael Sexton; Juilliard School voice and speech professor Susan Finch; and Fiasco Theater company member Andy Grotelueschen (Cymbeline and Two Gentlemen of Verona).

The classes are described as being geared to "those looking for more in-depth classical acting training throughout the summer. Working with carefully assigned scenes, students will be exposed to a broad range of teachers and working professionals to develop all aspects of their craft." The cost is $780.
