Shakespeare Explained

Breaking down the banter and understanding the text. As part of the Play on Words, New Milton Literary Festival, induldge in a day of Shakespearian exploration in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.

Tutor: Jackie Goddard

I trained originally as a fashion designer and worked as such for five years before realising it wasn’t for me and that I needed to act! During a stint working as a dresser for the RSC I found my tribe and decided to take an acting course at Mountview Theatre School in North London. I never looked back and have spent the last 20 years working as an actor, director and vocal coach. I have produced theatrical shows and run drama clubs for myself and other people and have developed and managed theatre performances and workshops for a number of schools in Hampshire and London. I have also performed in and produced theatre for the Edinburgh and London fringes.

I am a qualified LAMDA tutor and a trained Arts Award advisor.

Jackie has a calm and methodical approach to teaching this class which helps the participants to experiment with theatre for the first time in a safe space which without doubt helps to build confidence.  It’s also a lot of fun!
