Subject: 	Patrick Tucker Workshop at Tufts (free)

For Boston Area Shakespeareans and Actors:

The Tufts University Department of Drama & Dance will be sponsoring a 
free Shakespearean acting workshop with Patrick Tucker, this Saturday, 
November 19th, from 2-5pm, in the Balch Arena Theatre on the Tufts 
University (Medford) campus.

Formerly with the Royal Shakespeare Company, member of the Artistic 
Directorate of London's Shakespeare's Globe, and founder and director of 
London's Original Shakespeare Company, Patrick Tucker is a prolific 
stage and television director who has pioneered techniques for acting 
Shakespeare based in the First Folio.  Tucker is one of the world's 
leading instructors in verse speaking (his general approach to verse 
speaking is similar to that of John Barton, with whom he worked at the 
RSC).  Tucker's controversial techniques for acting Shakespeare based in 
the First Folio have demonstrated profound positive results both for 
student and professional performers.  Tucker is the author of The 
Secrets of Acting Shakespeare: The Original Approach, The Secrets of 
Screen Acting, and most recently, The Actors Survival Handbook.

Directions:  The Balch Arena Theatre is located in the Aidekman Arts 
Center on the Tufts campus.  For a map, Google or Mapquest the following 
address: 30 Talbot Avenue, Medford, MA, or see the Tufts University 
website (http://www.tufts.edu).  Talbot Avenue is closed at College 
Avenue for construction, so drivers will want to approach from either 
the street to the north or the west.
