Improvished Shakespeare (for 16+ and Adults) & Hamlet Ticket; Sat 25 Jan

Join ASC actors for an afternoon of fun playing with Shakespeare and Improvisation, facilitated by Carly Ellis. To get you thinking about Shakespeare the session will begin with a short performance by Elizabeth Brennan (Twelfth Night) and Andrew Cullimore (Romeo & Juliet) of the Bottom and Titania scene from A Midsummer Night’s Dream where you will become the Fairies. Then, Carly Ellis (Twelfth Night) will facilitate an Improvised Shakespeare workshop for adults (16+) before we all head to Hamlet – Under the Stars, in Melbourne Royal Botanic Gardens. Under 18’s must have parental consent. Work on status, spontaneity and narrative skills, whilst having a whole lot of fun with ASC actors in Melbourne CBD.

Please come with a monologue/sonnet memorised. Remember:
Thou = You
Thee = You
Thy =You

The m’re Shakespeare thee knoweth the easi’r ’twill beest.

Improvised Shakespeare runs from 2:30 – 5:30pm at The Greek Centre and Hamlet starts at 8:30pm in Royal Botanic Gardens.
