This extended stage combat workshop is geared toward actors with previous stage combat experience. It’s spring in NE Ohio–prepare for audition season with all those local Shakespeare companies by sharpening your stage combat skills.

Only 10 students accepted for each day. Small class environment allows us give plenty of one-on-one instruction and provide a steel weapon for all students. This workshop will be more fast-paced and challenging than our normal FIGHT NIGHTs. If you wonder whether this class is appropriate for your skill level, reach out to tess@ohioshakespeare.com.

3 Day Registration–$75
2 Day Pass–$55
1 Day Pass–$35

April 7–Single Sword.

Great prep for any swashbuckling shows–Single sword is a much needed skill set for any actor looking to tackle the classics.

April 14–Unarmed.

Whether it’s West Side Story or As You Like It or everything in between, every theatre has a moment of unarmed combat in their season. Brush up on slaps, punches, falls, kicks, and more.

April 21–Class Choice.

For the final day of this intensive, we will poll the class to see which weapon the majority prefers to work on. We will choose among: Quarterstaff, Knife, Broadsword, Sword & Shield, Smallsword, or Rapier & Dagger.

(Please note: while this workshop will be an excellent professional development opportunity, it does not qualify toward SAFD sanctioned contact hours.)
