These workshops are designed for high school students studying Drama or English with a focus on Shakespeare. The incredible Amanda LaBonte (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Macbeth, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Much Ado About Nothing, Romeo and Juliet) will deconstruct the school’s choice of text from the following list:
- A Midsummer Night’s Dream
- Romeo and Juliet
- Much Ado about Nothing
- Twelfth Night
- Julius Caesar
Workshops will be held via Zoom and will include a 90-minute workshop and 30-minute Q&A session, moderated by Helen Perris.
Amanda’s knowledge of Shakespeare is incredibly broad and deep, and she draws from both her experience playing many of Shakespeare’s characters (Titania and Helena in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Lady Macbeth in Macbeth, Lady Capulet in Romeo and Juliet, Beatrice in Much Ado About Nothing, Brutus in Julius Caesar, and more) over the last two decades, and her skills as a drama tutor to present for us.
HPMS is proud to support and connect both professional performers and schools in 2020.
