Unrehearsed Classes Return!

Come learn to experience Verse in a dynamic new way (that is actually a dynamic old way). Unrehearsed Shakespeare is a text-based technique inspired by Patrick Tucker’s ‘Secrets of Acting Shakespeare,’ which enables actors to effectively and organically stage Elizabethan plays without conventional direction. The technique teaches teamwork, active listening, improvisation, commitment, and above all a strong investment in the text.

All classes take place at Pendulum Theater space, 1803 W Byron Street, #216

COST: $10 per student. Due upon arrival to the first class. Classes are free for all active Unrehearsed performers.

Please contact Jared McDaris or unrehearsedchicago@gmail.com to reserve a spot.
