train in classical performance with the PAC:
our classic stages program
Our approach to classical acting is practical and immersive. If you’ve seen a PAC
show, you know what to expect: immediacy of language and thought; and the
pursuit of deep human motivation inspired directly by the text. Whether you’re a
novice or professional, we’ll empower you to speak – and hear – classical verse
with radical practicality and emotional depth.
Come into the room with PAC Co-Founder Dan Hodge to explore the tools and techniques that make our approach to classical language so dynamic and unique. Training with immersive exploration will bring fresh insight into how one first approaches classical text and how to find the humanity and specificity within the language. Fun, thought provoking and challenging, this workshop makes room for the novice and experienced actor alike.

"As an avid fan and supporter of classic theater who has never received any acting training, Classic Stages provided me with a window into the world of the artists who bring to life the shows that I love so dearly, as well as a taste of the hard work that goes into every line I hear spoken from the stage. What a delectable and rare treat to try out the beautiful language of Shakespeare with my own voice, and to watch the learning process of both new and experienced actors who star in shows in the Philadelphia area. I felt as though I had stumbled into a rehearsal and was welcomed behind the scenes to learn side by side with people whose artistic talents I greatly admire. This course enriched my appreciation of the theater that I attend and gifted me with a new-found perspective on the choices that actors, directors, and other theater artists make. If you love theater, try Classic Stages. Even if you are a newbie like me, you will find that all experience levels are truly welcomed, appreciated, and celebrated. You will leave with a greater understanding of the theater, classic texts, and — most importantly — your own amazing voice."
