Zoom Workshop options:

During Covid-19 we have some online options:

  1. Online sessions and workshops, featuring a scene from a Shakespeare play (see play, scenes and theme options). Duration: 1-1.5 hrs
  2. Zoom coaching for Shakespeare monologues (Speech Festival) secondary and primary students. This training is advisably best done in a small group. Working in a group can be inspiring. Afterwards, students will be encouraged to choose their own way of performing the poem.
  3. Zoom coaching from small groups of students wanting to perform the same 'solo verse' for the Speech Festival
  4. Zoom training for presentations and competitions for groups of up to 20 students (can be 'converted' into face to face sessions later).
  5. Zoom coaching for Dramatic Duologue part of the Speech Festival (secondary students- max 3 pairs of students).
  6. Shakespeare English Drama club- weekly sessions (around 1.5 hours each) can be discussed. Training in acting and competitions
