PERFORMING ARTS OFFERING SHAKESPEAREAN MASTER CLASS
 
The University of Louisiana at Lafayette Department of Performing Arts and the Lyceum Committee is offering a Shakespearean Masterclass on Oct. 30 from 2:30 to 4 p.m. in Burke Hall.

The Masterclass is a participatory class that explores the complexities of Shakespearean texts. Participants will act scenes from Shakespeare’s plays, utilizing Aquila Theater Company’s methods of classical acting.

Students will be shown the clear directions and choices Shakespeare gives actors within the text. The textual analysis will focus on exploring the demands and rewards of verse speaking. It will also include examples of verse structure and rhythm.

The class is devised to give participants a strong comprehension and illumination of a Shakespearean text from a performance perspective.

For information or to register call Allison Hetzel at 482-1187 or e-mail Ahetzel25@aol.com.
