WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

Juilliard MFA, Class of 2025

"This reminded me of what training was again. In the professional world I was so focused on putting out a product, and this was an opportunity to be a student again."

ARIEL SANDINO

UNCSA BFA, Class of 2025

"This taught me how to dive deeper into my pieces so that my connection to the text is specific and imaginative, but also bold."

NICK BYERS

BROWN MFA, Class of 2025

"I learned how to break down text (Shakespeare was tough for me prior), make things more personal, and so much more. I'm a more well-rounded actor because of it."

"I have gained insight and knowledge that you will not find anywhere else! If it wasn't for these instructors, I would be a lot more anxious and lost."

When you read Shakespeare for the first time, HOW MUCH do you comprehend?

24%.png

Before this training

71%.png

After this training

Our average student more than DOUBLES their understanding of the text on a cold read of Shakespeare!*

*based on real survey data from students in How To Get Into Shakespeare

You won't know this unless you've had good training...

The flow is different

Shakepeare wrote in a pre-Freudian era, meaning subtext wasn't as popular back then as it is today. If you can't ride the flow of the classical language...

**AUDIENCES WILL FEEL TRAPPED!**

warning2.png

Words mean different things

You might think "wherefore" in Shakespeare means "where," but it doesn't. Did you know "will" is a sexual innuendo? If you don't know the difference between "thy" and "you"...

**YOU WON'T MAKE SENSE!**

warning3.png

Religion was HUGE

Characters who take oaths are putting themselves in a life or death situation! If characters address a religious leader informally, it could be their demise! Characters who cast spells are not playing pretend!

**DON'T MINIMIZE THE STAKES!**

Whether it's on stage or in the audience, we've all seen it...
BAD SHAKESPEARE!!!!!!

Even if you have good natural instincts, lack of quality Shakespeare training leads to mediocre performances at best, and crippling self-consciousness at worst.

Broad-stroke, one-dimensional choices

 

Excessive physical and vocal tension

 

“Showing” or “indicating” the character

 

Destroying the integrity of the text, and therefore the scene

 

Dreading rehearsals, thus underworking and underperforming

 

Your true talent/humanity/uniqueness NOT being revealed!

If you feel intimidated by Shakespeare, that's natural. But if you want to be confident, it's important that you really dive in.

This course will help you scale that mountain with ease.

FAQs

  • How long is the program?
    101 days. It starts on Oct 1, 2023 and ends on Jan 9, 2024.
  • Is there a payment plan option?
    Yes, and there are no extra fees for that service. If you would like to submit a payment plan request, email Anthony at anthony@howtogetintodramaschool.com. You will receive a response within 24hrs to help you set that up.

  • What happens if I miss a Masterclass or Group Call etc?
    If you miss any group calls or masterclasses, it is your responsibility to notify Anthony and request the recording.
  • How do the Mock Auditions work?
    Mock auditions will be held 3x throughout the program and you will get further details about those on the Day 1 Group Call (Oct 1). You can view those as the dress rehearsals before your real auditions.
  • How do I book my 1-on-1 monologue coaching sessions?
    Once you make your purchase and become official, you will have access to our coaching calendar and you'll be given a code with your specific amount of 1-on-1 sessions loaded onto it. You can go into our calendar anytime and book a session based on what's available. We will have plenty of availability. There's no rush. You should book sessions whenever you feel like you need feedback.
  • Who coaches the 1-on-1 sessions?
    You will be given a coach when you schedule your session. It will be one of the program coaches, and you will work with different coaches over time. The system automatically assigns a coach for each session. This is done on purpose. Getting diverse feedback is more beneficial than working with just one coach.
