If you are planning on attending our first Naked Shakespeare workshop on Monday, September 22nd, please bring a (continuous) selection of your favorite lines from Shakespeare. These should be verse (only) and between 6 and 12 lines (no more please). They should represent a complete thought or thoughts and can be from a character of any gender or age. More than one actor can work with the same text, so no need to let us know in advance what text you are bringing.
We strongly recommend you wear loose fitting comfortable clothes and bring a pencil or pen, as well as a water bottle (there is no water source easily accessible other than the bathroom sink).
We have only 12 yoga mats, so please bring one if you have one as well.
If you cannot make this first meeting, but still want to be a part of the workshops, please email us if you have not already.
If you are not certain if you want to attend or not, keep in mind that we are not thinking you are making a commitment for the entire three and a half months simply by attending this first session. Come check it out, and we can always chat after if you have questions.
We look forward to seeing you on Monday at 6:30pm at Mechanics Hall–519 Congress St. Please meet us outside the building and arrive on time, as the doors will be locked if you arrive late.
