We hope you’ll join us for a wide-ranging conversation with one of America’s most influential directors and drama instructors. Louis Scheeder teaches at NYU’s prestigious Tisch School of the Arts. He founded and now oversees its Classical Studio, an advanced training program, and he also serves as Associate Dean of Faculty. During the 1970s Mr. Scheeder won plaudits as Producer of the Folger Theatre Group, a vibrant company that performed both Renaissance classics and cutting-edge contemporary works on an Elizabethan stage that became of of the most dynamic venues in the Nation’s Capital. In subsequent years he has worked with the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-upon-Avon and with The Factory in London, and he conducts workshops in settings such as California’s Huntington Library. He has delighted audiences with three Off Broadway shows, among them Amlin Gray’s How I Got That Story. He has contributed to a widely-admired volume about Training the American Actor. And in collaboration with our December guest, Shane Ann Younts, he has compiled All the Words on Stage: A Complete Pronunciation Dictionary for the Plays of William Shakespeare.   


Visit www.shakesguild.org for more details about this and a variety of other Guild offerings, among them our 2016 Gielgud Award presentation, to occur on Sunday, October 9, at London’s historic Guildhall, with Vanessa Redgrave as this year’s honoree.
