The Classical Studio

Classical Studio Logo

The Classical Studio is a year-long, production-oriented ensemble emphasizing individual attention and performance experience. Concentrating largely on Shakespeare as a basis for training in both classical and modern texts, all company members participate in two Shakespeare productions, a 10-minute-play collaboration with Dramatic Writing students, an original devised production (our Word Orgy), and a Spring Repertory in which both Shakespeare productions are revived after further training. This is in addition to a weekly array of classes training the mind, voice, and body.  

In the second semester, emphasis is placed on the development of contemporary material for professional auditions and includes workshops with casting directors and other industry professionals on audition technique and professional preparation.

With seven core faculty members and approximately 16 company members, individual coaching is the hallmark of the Classical Studio.
