Olive Branch and Laurel Crown: Peace and War through Shakespeare’s Text at The Studio at the Chesapeake Shakespeare Company
A free acting ensemble workshop course for veterans will begin April 15, 2017, at The Studio at the Chesapeake Shakespeare Company.
Participants will explore themes of peace and war in Shakespeare’s plays during this free 10-week course culminating in a performance for family, friends and invited guests. No acting experience is needed. During the first session on April 15, course students may audition to perform, but there are also roles for non-performers, so come one, come all!
The course will examine the text, emotional context, issues, and themes in some of Shakespeare’s best-known history plays with plots involving war and peace. Enjoy a one-of-a-kind learning experience with Chesapeake Shakespeare Company’s Teaching Artists offered in association with Vet Arts Connect, an initiative of The Institute for Integrative Health.*
The course will meet Saturdays, April 15 through June 17, 2017, from 10am to 12:30pm. Veterans of all branches may enroll: men and women, ages 20 to 85 (combat experience is not necessary). Admission is free. Register today!
