Virtual Open Workshops
Tuesdays, 8pm EST
We are excited to bring our Open Workshops into the online world. Using Zoom, we will create a new "room" where we can play and be together as a community. There will be some of it we have to figure out as we go, but our hope is that it will be as close to our regular workshops as possible with people chosen at the top of the night to work, facilitators, and feedback from the group. This will still be donation-based and you do not need to register in advance - just join us on Tuesday!

Clowning with Mark Gindick
Saturday, September 19th, 2pm EST
Through rigorous warm-up, movement exercises and improvisation, the student will uncover the spirit of clown, be shaking life into their body and finding the comic edges in their physical attack. This master class is designed to teach students to get out of their heads and into their bodies. Learn about key elements including relationship, rhythm, and clown logic. This class is perfect for the actor who wants to add to their toolbox: The director who wants to explore physical theater: and the writer who wants to learn more about physical comedy. You will awake your inner clown character and discover how to write your own physical comedy routines and you will gain the skills to perform what you have written.
Find out more about Mark at his website HERE!

$20 per person.
Teaching From Home
Monday, September 28th, 7:30pm EST
During the COVID 19 pandemic, many children are being left behind due to a consistent lack of instruction. The earliest and most crucial skills of academic development- reading literacy and numeracy- can suffer when students are not routinely instructed. As we face a Fall where many families may still have to homeschool/preschool online, The Shakespeare Forum is supplying programming to support families/caregivers in the development of communication and literacy skills in the home. It is our belief that with relatively minimal training, primary caregivers can play a large part in the development of these core competencies. This class is aimed at supporting families of young children/ students (6 and under) at home to develop some core skills using simply the home environment as instruction.
This online workshop class will be 90 minutes and free of charge.
