Discover our Shakespeare Masterclass series
Each year at LAMDA we begin our US Shakespeare Masterclass Tour, currently hosted by Rodney Cottier, LAMDA’s former Head of Drama School. We offer in person (and online where necessary) masterclasses designed to inspire university and college students across the US.
The masterclass gives a taste of LAMDA training to students. With 35 years experience as a stage director, teacher of stage combat, acting and text Rodney Cottier leads an exciting, engaging and educational class.
His respect and passion for the text is truly contagious.
About the masterclasses
Delivered in 3-hour masterclasses, Rodney passionately explores Shakespeare’s First Folio starting with a short history of Shakespeare and The Globe Theatre, followed by getting students up on their feet to work some of the Bard's text.
We tailor to the level of the class, and is suitable for those with both tons of, to no experience with Shakespeare!
