About the Artist

Educational Residencies for all grade levels from Jr. High to University.

Drama in Action
Junior High School students learn basic Broadsword with wooden swords and perform a specially re-written scene from RICHARD III, HENRY V or JULIUS CAESAR in a SAFE and dynamic group fight scene.

Shakespeare Production
Using a cut down but educationally complete script and an innovative new spin on an old technique, we have High School students up on their feet doing a full 45 min production of either MACBETH, ROMEO &&&& JULIET, HAMLET, HENRY V or RICHARD III with only eight rehearsals. We also incorporate set pieces, wardrobe pieces, makeup, stage effects and of course, plenty of SAFE staged combat.

Acting The Fight
University level Staged Combat class focuses on character-motivated violence. This course uses scenes from both classical and contemporary plays.

Whatever show you''re doing:
Fight Director Mark Bedell can come in and train you actors for a specific show of your choosing. See website for further details.
