The Young Bards program seeks to train young actors in methods of expression and interpretation of classical text.  Students will learn and grow in their understanding of theater, iambic pentameter, physical expression, and emotional commitment to a character.  They will help select scenes, write their own introductions, and establish a performance order to create a fluid and engaging final performance. The scenes will be also be performed prior to the Capitol Shakespeare Mainstage production of The Winter's Tale.
