All The Roles You Wanted To Play In Shakespeare, Yet Hitherto Had No Way To Try ...
Under the guidance of our compere, the Master Sonneteer (because he learnt all 154 of them by heart; it’s a terrific party trick), actor, comic, and educator, Will Sutton will give you the chance to jump up, drink in hand, and have a swing at Hamlet, King Lear, Cleopatra, Lady Macbeth, Romeo & Juliet… Much like the singing kind, Shakespeare Karaoke projects a sonnet, speech or scene, and the stage awaits - YOU. Listen as Will takes us through a simple guide to acting Shakespeare (breathe, read to the punctuation… breathe!), and drink deep as the first folk find their feet. Then wait no longer, elbow the others out of the way, grab a crown or (fake) sword from Sassy Smit’s props table, or volunteer your friend for the part you’ve always wanted them to play.
Here, Shakespeare really IS for everyone.
No acting experience required. Ever. Even slightly. Open bar all evening.
