Theatrical Workshop

04/04/2019 8:00pm

'...One of the things about acting is it allows you to live other people's lives without paying the price...' Robert De Niro

Here at Staged Cambridge, we quite like Mr De Niro's mantra. After all, isn't acting all about stepping in to someone else's shoes and becoming them, even if it is only fictitious??
Well we're about to put this to the test, when the group reunites to experiment with, and consider a number of play scripts for our theatre showcase, scheduled to be our first production, in a couple of months time.
We're keen to hear from individuals who have an interest in amateur theatre, with or without experience, to help us achieve our goal.

Staged Cambridge has developed a programme which will delve in to a variety of theatrical genres, including improvisation, classic and contemporary. We also plan to include periodic workshops to help us all improve our understanding of our craft.
We'll be meeting on Thursday 4th April at 8pm, at Cherry Hinton Library, High Street, Cherry Hinton, CB1 9HZ. Entry is just £1 to cover cost of facilities. (10% booking fee)

Shakespeare in Italy Summer School, Florence



July 6-19

5 per cent discount on all bookings received with €400.00 deposit before February 15

I'm contacting you with details of Shakespeare in Italy's 5th summer school, to be held this year at the British Institute in Florence from July 6 – 19.

The summer school gives participants the rare opportunity to work with tutors who are leaders in their field in the UK theatre world. Royal Shakespeare Company and Globe directors Lucy Bailey and Chris Luscombe will lead work on Julius Caesar and Romeo and Juliet and acclaimed actor/director Philip Franks on The Two Gentlemen of Verona.

Last year in Pizzo Calabro we had a wonderful group, ranging in age from 18 to 95 from all over the world. Everyone took part in putting scenes from the plays on their feet but in past years some people have wanted to participate from the comfort of their seats. Both approaches are welcome!

Our course is practical, not academic, and it is open to all, the only proviso being that you can speak English fluently.

The benefits are innumerable and there is always a lot of fun to be had as well as gaining great theatrical insight into the texts. Please find the attached PDF for more details and contact Mary Chater at shakespeareinitaly.eu@gmail.com with any questions you may have.

We'd love you to join us but don't delay booking because summer hotel rooms in Florence get snapped up very quickly! If you would like to book, just email me without delay. I will give you the details you will need to make your deposit and save your place on the course. Don’t forget if we receive this before February 15 you will receive a 5 per cent discount!

With best wishes from Collette Parker and Mary Chater (a founder of the company)

Shakespeare in Italy – ‘country and playwright – exploring the relationship through performance.’
