The Nashville Shakespeare Festival’s mission is to educate and entertain the Mid-South community through professional Shakespearean experiences. NSF Teaching Artists’ approach in the classroom aims to identify the essential humanity found within the text, and then introduces tools actors use to make sense of the language, characters, and stories. No matter who you are, where you’re from, or what you like, NSF presents Shakespeare’s works in a way that is accessible to all. The workshops, classes, and coaching sessions incorporate introductory to advanced practices of text analysis, scansion, voice work and projection, stage presence, and physical and movement training.
