What our former participants say:

“If you’ve ever felt like you don’t know Shakespeare well enough to be able to perform it, then I can’t express enough how much Lizzie is the best person to guide you." - Mary Ann Cafferkey

“The Shakespeare course with Lizzie was a great experience and showed us how to honour Shakespeare's text whilst also being free, real & creative. I would definitely recommend it." - Nick Dowlatshahi

DISCLAIMER: Please Note:
Actors will need to be available to meet between classes to run lines with their scene partners once scenes are allocated.  All students will be treated as professional actors, and members of a theatre company; as such, professional behaviour and mutual respect are expected at all times.  Students are required to be confidently off-book by the deadline set by the director.  All students are required to attend all classes. Failure to do so, and any other unacceptable or behaviour, may result in the participant being removed from the course and excluded from the final performance without refund of the course fee.
