We are now hosting in-person Open Workshops every Tuesday, 8-10pm!

The Shakespeare Forum Weekly Open Workshops

​TUESDAYS IN-PERSON 8:00pm - 10:00pm ET
El Barrio's Artspace PS109 (215 East 99th Street)

Twice a week actors, directors, producers and artists from all walks of life come together to work and play with the words of Shakespeare. Okay, so sometimes it’s not Shakespeare, but the spirit of exploration is ever-present as we delve into the text, challenging ourselves and each other to grow and change. No reservation or advance notice is necessary - all are welcome!

Over the course of a typical Tuesday or Thursday night, 4-5 people play with a monologue (sometimes a scene) and they receive feedback from the rest of the room facilitated by The Shakespeare Forum staff. They will then play with the piece again and the room talks about what changed. There can be anywhere from 20 to 80 people in the room. There's no pressure to perform, or to even get up and work if that's not something you're interested in. It's a space to play and to help each other. We hope you can make it out!

This is a donation-based class. It’s not about the money, it’s about resurrecting the true artist spirit- an open heart, a sense of humor and a belief that we are stronger when we are together.

Suggested Donation: $5
