“Playing The Bard” will now be running at Howard Fine Acting Studio Australia from Tuesday May 21 until June 25, and we’re excited to get back into the work! Shakespeare Republic Creator/Director, Sally McLean is bringing back her own unique take on the Bard and the technique she uses when working with her award-winning Republic cast, for another six week course that will help actors truly make Shakespeare’s words their own!
“Sally’s knowledge of Elizabethan times as well as Shakespeare’s works was out of this world.”
HEATHER ALLARDYCE (Actor)
This six week course will enable actors to delve deep into Shakespeare’s text, create place and embody character, bringing Shakespeare’s words truly to life in a 21st Century context. After working with Sally for five weeks, the course culminates in a live presentation of the work-in-progress for family, friends and invited guests at the final sixth class.
Students will also have the chance to take part in a Q&A with one of our fabulous Shakespeare Republic ensemble in a special session during the course. We are speaking with a couple of our lovely cast members at the moment and will announce which one will be our Special Guest for the course in the next couple of weeks via social media on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
“The time and effort Sally put into working with each individual performer said everything to me – everyone matters, everyone is important. Nothing was generic – everything was specific, an observation on the work you were doing right there and then.”

“Sally is born to teach and provides a safe, inspiring and creative work place. It was fun, challenging, exciting and inspiring to be a part of such a wonderful class. I highly recommend that everyone does this course. Being an actor Sally understands so much more and her knowledge of Shakespeare is just phenomenal.”
