Shakespeare & Company’s Center for Actor Training Announces Voice Into Text


A Six-week, Online Linklater Workshop Offered from April 15 through May 20

LENOX, Mass. – Shakespeare & Company’s Center for Actor Training will hold an online workshop, Voice Into Text A Linklater Workshop on Mondays, April 15 through May 20, led by Designated Linklater Teacher Sarah Weatherwax.

This workshop aims to allow participants an opportunity to deepen their vocal connection to text through an exploration of the Linklater Voice Progression, and is open to all levels, though some previous experience with this method is recommended. 

Sessions will begin with a warm-up, and then move on to learning, reviewing, and practicing specific exercises according to the needs of the group. The first few sessions will focus primarily on voice, while the second half will focus on various ways to apply a freer voice directly to text.

Voice Into Text will be held for six weeks on April 15, 22, and 29, and May 6, 13, and 20, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuition is $250 USD, and the class meets via Zoom. Discounted tuition options are available for BIPOC artists. Alumni and union discounts are also available.

 For more information or to apply, visit, or call 413.637.1199, ext. 114.

Shakespeare & Company’s Center For Actor Training

The aesthetic of Shakespeare & Company was created within the training devised by Founding Artistic Director Tina Packer and a cadre of expert teachers. It is through these programs that the aesthetic is continually investigated, redefined, and reinvigorated, and that welcomes actors, directors, writers, and teachers from all over the world to work with the Company’s faculty. Through the Center for Actor Training, Shakespeare & Company’s performance artists, education artists, and artist managers develop a common artistic vocabulary and a coherent approach to performing Shakespeare.
