Geordie Theatre School and Repercussion Theatre are teaming up to engage youth in an exciting part of English culture: Shakespeare-in-the-Park! This summer as part of Repercussion Theatre's Shakespeare-Before-the-Show series, GTS will be leading an Introduction to Shakespeare Workshop before select Repercussion performances.

In this workshop youth will learn what all the thy, wilt thou, wherefore and forsooths are all about and finally experience the fun of speaking Shakespearean text! The 2 hour workshop will culminate in a chance to meet the cast of Repercussion's Measure for Measure, ask questions of the director, and participate in a professional pre-show warm-up!

Following the workshop participants and their families are encouraged to stay to watch Measure for Measure!

Register today as space is limited (Maximum 10 kids per class)
