ITC will offer fall classes
PRINCETON — The Illinois Theatre Conservatory (ITC), the education committee of the Princeton Theatre Group (PTG), is pleased to announce its fall 2012 series of theatre classes in cooperation with Illinois Valley Community College. During the month of October, two courses will be held at the Grace Performing Arts Center, 316 S. Main St., in Princeton.
“Do It Yourself Shakespeare,” a three-session class taught by Dexter Brigham, executive artistic director of ITC’s famed affiliate, Festival 56, will be held beginning Oct. 1 and continue on Oct. 15 and 22. In this class, students will explore selected scenes and soliloquies from some of Shakespeare’s most important plays, taking parts such as Romeo, Juliet, Hamlet and Macbeth under the tutelage of a well-known and highly regarded local producer and director, whose repertoire includes the popular annual Princeton summer event, Shakespeare in the Park.
Students will consider their thoughts, feelings and reactions to the parts read by others, in an informal and relaxed series of readings, for which no previous experience is required. Plot summaries will be provided in advance, so there will be no need to plow through all five acts of anything in order to understand the context.
