Subject:        Shakespeare at Winedale Applications

Application are now being accepted for the 28th Summer Session of
Shakespeare at Winedale.  Please pass the following information on to
students and scholars.

The Program:
Shakespeare at Winedale is an academic course for six hours credit in
the College of Liberal Arts at The University of Texas at Austin.  The
program is open to upper-division college or university students,
graduate students, post-graduates, and students in professional schools
(e.g., law, medicine).  The purpose of the course is to study
Shakespeare plays through performance.  The course is taught, lived, and
played in residence on the 250 acre University of Texas Winedale
Historical Center, near Round Top, Texas, in Fayette County German farm
country.  For nine weeks, students become residents of Winedale, live in
the Wagner House dormitory and study Shakespeare 15-18 hours a day,
seven days a week, in an 1880 Theatre Barn.  The summer concludes with
24 public performances of the plays studied.

Preference is given to students  who have never performed.  During the
past 27 years, students' majors have ranged from law and medicine to
physics, music, physical education, foreign language, art, psychology,
literature, history, and engineering.  Some students, at the outset, had
never read Shakespeare; some have been Ph.D. candidates in literature
and philosophy.  The majority have been college and university juniors
and seniors.  Preference is given to students with intellectual,
physical, and emotional energy; students who are willing to give
everything up for the ensemble; who are willing to explore, challenge,
and invent at all costs; students who are willing to listen to others,
to accept and give criticism; students who can play, who are or want to
be creative; and students with a high tolerance for heat and dirt.
