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 $75-$100 per student (depending on the course), these classes are a steal! See below for detailed descriptions, or start shopping right away.

Don't see a workshop here that you love? Keep checking back--we will be adding more throughout the year! 

Private tutoring (acting, verse, combat, etc.) also available; call 330-374-7574 for details.

Scholarship applications are available upon request.  OSF wants to make our art accessible to the entire community.  Please reach out to us if you feel your student may qualify for one of our need-based scholarships.
