“The problem with a lot of acting coaches is their ego gets in the way of providing a safe, creative space for actors to learn and grow. Seth has none of that. As an actor, he understands what’s needed and communicates it in a way which allows the actor to have fun (unfortunately a rare concept) and freely explore.” — Tony Hale, Award-winning Actor

Please have a Shakespeare monologue memorized for the first day of class. Please also bring a copy of Shakespeare’s Complete Works, or the free Shakespeare app that has the text so you can participate fully in the text analysis.
This 8-week course, taught by Seth Barrish, applies The Barrow Group techniques to Shakespeare. Here you will learn specific tools that lead to greater understanding of the text and much greater clarity in your performances. The first part of the course will be dedicated to monologue work and the second half will focus on scenes. Seth’s common sense approach makes Shakespeare surprisingly accessible.
