Minnesota Shakes - Winter Session

Minnesota Shakes is now registering students for the winter session. If you are a 7th-12th grader who loves acting and wants Shakespearean training, come join Minnesota Shakes on Saturdays this winter!  Aspiring Shakespearean actors will be able to participate in an intensive ten-week Saturday class that culminates with a Shakespearean production of The Comedy of Errors on April 29th. 

The teaching artists are Kate Powers and Adam Gauger who bring years of Shakespearean training, acting, and directing to the program. They will instruct 16 students in Shakespearean acting and create a stage production in the round. Stage combat and clowning specialists will also work with the students. Students will attend a workshop at the Guthrie Theater and see King Lear on one Saturday. 

Saturdays from February 4 until April 29th (no class 2/18, 4/1, 4/8). 10:00-1:00. Extra tutorials until 2:00 on certain weeks. One dress rehearsal on Friday, April 28th. 

$350. Scholarships available. 

Location is Gethsemane Episcopal Church at 905 S 4th Ave. Access from 2 bus lines and light rail.
