Shaw Masterclass with Kelli Fox – November 21 and 22, 2015

Headstrong Collective is thrilled to offer an opportunity to train with one of Canada’s finest Shavian actresses. Kelli Fox will be leading a two-day masterclass for professional actors who would like to deepen their understanding and sharpen their technical skills with the works of George Bernard Shaw. On Day One, Kelli will introduce her method for approaching and understanding Shaw and then each participant will work their monologue. On Day Two, we will delve into scene study with scenes chosen by Kelli from the course materials listed below. If you have a scene you have been dying to try or a classmate you would love to work with, please let us know in your submission! Otherwise, Kelli will assign your scene one week in advance so that you can make the most of this opportunity.

She has spent 13 seasons with the Shaw Festival (including Intelligent Homosexual’s Guide in 2015), and 3 with Stratford.
