Between now and the end of the current theatrical season next spring, Company of Fools will offer a trifecta of weekend acting workshop intensives, the first of which will last from Friday, Aug. 23, through Sunday, Aug. 25.
The Hailey theater company’s new producing artistic director, Scott Palmer, will lead actors in an intensive course of Shakespearean analysis.
Many actors struggle with the heightened, occasionally archaic language of English Renaissance playwrights, but Palmer, who has more than 20 years of experience with classical texts, will train participants on how to dissect the Bard’s literary intricacies and illuminate surefire ways to breathe new life into familiar lines.
The workshop will conclude in an open performance for the community at 4 p.m. on Sunday at the Liberty Theatre in Hailey. Registration for actors costs $50 for the full three-day series. Visit sunvalleycenter.org for details or to sign up.
