Venue:
Mercury Theatre

Our Mercury Masterclasses are run by creative professionals from across the industry, offering you a chance to engage, learn and network with fellow theatre and arts enthusiasts.

Join Simon Money – former resident voice coach at the National Theatre and Royal Shakespeare Company and current voice and accent tutor at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama – on the set of the latest Mercury Production, Comedy of Errors, to break down Shakespeare and get to grips with the Bard’s texts.

Over the 4 hours, you will tackle a piece of unseen Shakespearean text, applying accessible and practical exercises in order to unlock meaning and structures without the need to ‘step up’ into the text or to put on a ‘Shakespearean’ voice.

The workshop, which is accessible to all, is practical and physical so please wear clothes you feel comfortable moving in. The work will touch on release of physical tension, opening the breath and freeing the voice.

You will leave with a series of practical exercises that can be applied to any text – and therefore able to explore Shakespeare confidently in your own voice.

And if that wasn’t enough – why not join us for The Comedy of Errors right after! Buy this workshop and a tickets for a preview show all for £30.
