Get tickets in advance or pay at the door. 
Ages 14+. 


Weekend Workshop: Physical Comedy

November 19 & 20

12:00-3:00 Both days


Taught by Joe Pine and Tess Burgler, this two day workshop will focus on Shakespeare’s world of comedy. Through improvisation, commedia dell’arte traditions, and text analysis, students will focus on using Shakespeare’s words to find opportunities for physical comedy and take Will's writing off the page and bring it to life, proving that funny is funny whether you live in 1600 or 2016. Open to all ages, recommended for 10+.

$100 for 6 hours total training, small-class environment, takes place on the Henry C. Bishop Stage in Greystone Hall.
