Acting classes & workshops
Vienna Shakespeare offers open-enrolment acting workshops
focused exclusively on exploring, performing and understanding
Shakespeare's plays and sonnets.
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.
Weekly Actors Workshop
This weekly workshop is your chance to perform and explore your favourite Shakespearean characters. Join us every week, or drop in!
Since this class is focused on acting and understanding individual characters,
rather than whole plays - it's a perfect place to bring a whole variety of questions,
interests and topics to explore!
In a single class, we may start by talking through Hamlet's philosophy
in "To be or not to be", then work on the stage fighting of Romeo and Juliet,
and then finish with Sonnet 130 and all its delicate double meanings!
So join us! and live out your Villain & Hero fantasies.
Get tons of individual feedback and insight into your acting,
Dive into discussions of what makes these plays and characters work,
Learn how to bring your own unique take on these magnificent characters.
Bring any character you want, this class is gender/age/type neutral.

"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!"
