What to expect:

  • Uncover the unique intersection between you and the character
  • Discover the joy and excitement in forging connections with your audience
  • Develop specificity, and the ability to think clearly while riding the emotional waves of Shakespeare’s words

Join us for a weekend full of exploration and fun! Work on a monologue of your choosing with a small class size – ensuring personalised attention. You will also have opportunities to work collaboratively with the group – it’s like having a supportive Shakespearean team!

Speaking Shakespeare In Your Own Voice is facilitated by experienced Core Ensemble actor and director Rebecca Murphy.

Rebecca Murphy
Bec is an absolute superstar. She has given me invaluable techniques and strategies to move past my personal blocks and fully connect with the character, but also the courage to use my voice and trust myself and my instincts as an actor. She creates such a wonderful, safe training environment and she finds a way to seek the absolute best from each participant in the way that works for them, because I believe she truly enjoys helping others grow.” Paris, 2023
