Vienna Shakespeare offers open-enrolment acting classes and workshops focused exclusively on learning, understanding, and performing Shakespeare's plays and sonnets as an actor and performer.
We work with the original English works, and all classes are held in English.
There are classes available for all levels, from total beginners to experienced actors.
And if you're looking for an opportunity to perform on stage, the Summer and Winter Intensive Workshops end in a public performance!
A weekly workshop focused on performing and discussing various sonnets and scenes from Shakespeare's plays.
A perfect opportunity to try out a challenging role and get individual feedback and insight into a variety of Shakespeare's styles. Learn to read the emotional cues Shakespeare left in the text, and make strong decisions that let you create a uniquely personal performance.
All casting is gender/type neutral, everyone is welcome to bring their favourite scenes and roles
"Catrina Poor is a wonderful and passionate teacher, whether it's her acting, speech or Shakespeare classes.
She helped me navigate through complex plays and characters with her knowledge, wit and flexibility. Always supportive and looking for what would benefit me the most and make me grow as an actor, in a warm and welcoming environment.
She definitely is my number 1 recommendation for actors who want to expand their acting skills. No matter if you are a beginner or a full-time pro.
A true treasure for the Viennese acting community!"
