STCs interns and fellows work alongside some of the most renowned artists and professionals in the world to produce and support the mainstage season at the nations premier classical theatre, located in Washington, D.C.
During this two-week intensive, young actors dive head first into the world of the greatest playwright in history: William Shakespeare. Under the guidance of theatre professionals, participants unravel his plays with text analysis; transform into Shakespeares characters through voice, movement and improvisation work; wage battles against mortal enemies with stage combat; and develop fundamental acting skills using classical theatre techniques. To culminate each session, participants stage a performance for friends and family at the Shakespeare Theatre Company.
