Ohio Shakespeare Festival Weekend Workshops

Our talented company members and educators want to share their skills and expertise with the community.  These fun and intensive programs are masterclasses in some of the most exciting elements of theatre.

Classes are suitable for all skill levels!  Whether you are a dedicated actor hoping to hone her classical acting skills or the curious beginner looking to have some fun with the Bard, we have the class you're looking for.

Small class environment, two days of training, and on the actual Greystone Stage. At $60-$100 per student (depending on the course), these classes are a steal! See below for detailed descriptions, or start shopping right away.

Calling all Knights of the Round Table!

Join us on the Henry C. Bishop stage to train with King Arthur's noble Knights...then stay for the show that evening!

Sir Dinadin and Sir Lancelot--two of Arthur's most courageous knights--will train you in arts of swordplay and chivalry. Sign up now to and use your "might for right!"
