Workshops for SCHOOLS

Shakespeare can be brought down from the ivory tower of the Academy.
Shakespeare can transcend the classroom.
All good teachers know this.
Often you have very little time to prepare.
Let us help you.

School workshops bring Shakespeare’s world and words to life.
Focusing on language, literature, drama, and history.

We ZOOM in on the play you are studying.
The play is put into theatrical, historical context.
The students take on character ROLES,
and re-enact the play’s story.

Workshops can be made to fit classrooms,
or combine several classes in a lecture hall.

We welcome and encourage post-show student and teacher reviews.

William’s entertaining, informative and interactive session
was the perfect ice-breaker for our Introduction to Shakespeare unit.
In a 90-minute session, William demonstrated a range of plays and characters.
After sharing some tricks-of-the-trade, William had our students
queuing up for the karaoke finale! Without doubt, mission accomplished!

Does it matter?

SHAOKE Bootcamp always works towards performance.
Physical work is about awareness and open for all body types.

You do the work.

A Testimonial from Erin Jo Harris:
William Sutton one of the WORLD’S top experts in performing and teaching Shakespeare.
Eric Rasmussen of the RSC Folio & and Paul Prescott – University of Warwick,
both know him well & and agree he’s as good as the best!
My private coaching session with Mr Sutton is a huge reason I landed
the role of Rosaline in LLL this summer in Prague.
Do yourself a favor and STUDY WITH THIS MAN!!!
