The New York Teen Shakespeare Intensive, a young actor training program of Yonder Window Theatre Company, delves deeply into Shakespeare’s works, characters, and language through a progressive program of physical movement training and character development techniques to prepare young actors, ages 15-19, with the fundamentals required for university and the professional acting arena.
By introducing students to Yonder Window Theatre Company’s performative aesthetic, the New York Teen Shakespeare Intensive trains a young actor’s voice and body, while allowing students to explore their intellects and imaginations. Through a daily schedule of rigorous classes, the program both nurtures and challenges its students to raise their craft to a higher level, while introducing them to the demands of university and conservatory programs.
Classes will be held at the Shetler Studios & Theatres located in New York City’s Theatre District. The intensive will culminate in a final performance, held in a the Penthouse One theatre space, to which family and friends are invited. Core faculty as well as Master Teachers and Guest Teaching Artists will participate in the training over the three-week period.
