Star Crossed Lovers Acting Programme

A Four Day Acting Intensive for 10-18 year olds

Do you want the chance to learn how to perform on the Pop-up Globe stage these school holidays? Do you want to take your Shakespearean acting skills to the next level by learning from one of our expert company actors? Join our four day acting intensive workshop and learn the art of acting Shakespeare Pop-up Globe style!

Students aged 10 to 18 with some prior experience in learning and performing Shakespeare will have the unique opportunity to enter the world of the Bard and his works at Pop-up Globe, an exact replica of the space in which Shakespeare’s plays were originally performed.

Using a concise edit of Romeo & Juliet, students will learn the vocal and physical skills required to perform in this space as well as gaining a practical understanding of iambic pentameter, status of characters, placing intentions and the baton to include the audience in the action of the play. The four day rehearsal process culminates in a small performance on stage for invited friends and family.
