The course takes place over two consecutive weeks (no weekends) and entails in depth work on approaching Shakespeare using RSC, Globe and National Theatre practice, culminating in a public black box, ensemble showing of a condensed Shakespeare play. With astounding feedback from participants across the board, don’t miss the chance to demystify Shakespeare and take your career to the next level!
Regular practitioners have included award winning actors Adjoa Andoh and Simon Trinder who have collectively performed in over 25 Shakespearean productions with the Royal Shakespeare Company, National Theatre and Shakespeare's Globe and Head of Voice at the National Theatre’s Jeannette Nelson.
Please note: As we are working practitioners, ICAT reserves the right to replace any of the course leaders at any point with an artist whom we deem appropriate.
How Do I Get A Place?
Please submit a one minute self taped Shakespearean monologue/soliloquy of your choice to firstname.lastname@example.org. We ask that you learn something in verse. Strong auditions will be followed by a phone interview with ICAT Principal Simon Trinder. Though we guarantee buckets of fun, as the title would suggest, the course is intense, and therefore we are as interested in attitude as we are in ability!
I had a fantastic time. I feel empowered to audition for the big guns and ready to hold my own when I get there. I felt like we arrived as a company but left as an ensemble.
I learned more about Shakespeare in this two weeks than I ever did at Drama School.
