Summer Acting Intensive at Shakespeare’s Globe

Learn Shakespeare at the source. Engage in theatre workshops at Shakespeare’s Globe in London, and visit his birthplace and grave in the charming town of Stratford-Upon-Avon. All the World’s a Stage!


Performing Arts Abroad is working in collaboration with Shakespeare’s Globe to offer a unique summer acting intensive exploring the performance of Shakespeare’s work through classes in movement, voice and speech, text interpretation, stage combat, and more. Classes will take place on the Globe premises, where you will train with London theatre professionals and get a behind-the-scenes look at the Globe’s summer productions. The course will culminate in a final presentation of work on the stage of the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, the Globe’s indoor candlelit theatre.

In addition to the course at the Globe, Performing Arts Abroad will be offering full on-site support including airport pickup, housing, orientation, city tours, attendance at three theatrical performances, a weekend trip to Stratford-Upon-Avon to explore Shakespeare’s birthplace, grave, and the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC), and much more.
