Description:

Starting Saturday, February 4, applications will become available online for the Globe’s 2017 Pam Farr Summer Shakespeare Studio for high school students. The applications, which will be accepted through April 1, will be accessible at www.TheOldGlobe.org/studio-application.

The four-week program is a unique opportunity for rising 9th – 12th graders and recent graduates not only to develop foundational skills for reading, interpreting, and performing Shakespeare’s plays, but also to cultivate their own artistic voice through storytelling and creating original material inspired by deep, personal connections to Shakespeare. This unique performance combines Shakespeare’s words, today’s popular songs, and original material generated by the Studio’s company. Master classes are offered with Globe artists and staff, many of whom are among the leaders in their fields. These instructors seek to deepen students’ understanding and appreciation of Shakespeare’s writing and to use his work as a model for engaging the students with their own experiences.

The Pam Farr Summer Shakespeare Studio will run Monday – Friday, July 17 – August 14, and will culminate in a public performance on Monday, August 14 at 7:00 p.m. on the Donald and Darlene Shiley Stage in the Old Globe Theatre, part of the Globe’s Conrad Prebys Theatre Center.
