Reading and Acting Shakespeare's Henry V

GENINT 741.417

Osher (50+). This course allows students the opportunity to read aloud and discuss one of William Shakespeare's plays. Students do not need prior acting experience, only a passion for exploring Shakespeare's genius and a copy of the play.                      


About this course:

The ideal group for those who love acting, theatre, language, and Shakespeare. Each week we read scenes from the play aloud, then analyze and discuss them from an actor's perspective (scripts in hand, no memorization required). We explore the different ways that Shakespeare's language helps us bring his extraordinary characters to life. All are welcome, no prior acting experience required, only a desire to passionately engage with the greatest dramatist of all time. Please bring a copy of the play to our first meeting.
