Acting Workshop with Company of Fools: Meet the Bard! An introduction to Shakespeare and classical text for actors


Participants will get a crash course in Shakespeare and classical text. Through games designed to make Shakespeare’s language come off the page, participants will learn to tackle Shakespeare without fear. We will explore the basics of iambic pentameter and how to make sense of a 400 year language. For Bard lovers or newbies - all are welcome!

Join Tamara Freeman from Company of Fools for a series of free acting workshops for teens ages 13-18. Whether you just want to get your feet wet, are interested in learning more about the craft, or preparing for theatre school, these workshops have something for everyone.

Tamara Freeman is a graduate of the Acting for Film and Television program at Humber College. She has had the absolute blessing and privilege to call herself a Fool since 2017, when she made her professional theatre debut in A Midsummer Night's Dream. Since then, she has worked in both Toronto and Ottawa performing on stage, in recording studios and on-set.
