Upcoming Topics:

Stage to Screen: How William Shakespeare's plays have been adapted from stage performance to movie format. What are your favorites, what works, and what doesn't?

 

Intro to Text Work: What are some of the tools used by BSF actors to break down and rebuild the meaning of the Bard's work to make it more understandable to the performer and audience?

 

Music of Shakespeare's Plays: BSF uses contemporary music familiar to our modern day audiences during our performances, much as The Lord Chamberlain's Men used the songs of their day. What were some of the actual songs from the 1600's, what did they sound like, and how were they used?
