Kelly Petrie has been teaching and directing youth & adults in Shakespeare for 20 years. She helps students decode Shakespeare's text to find the humor, passion, and drama in his work.
Kelly’s classes are fun, highly interactive, help build confidence, spark the imagination, and allow participants to find their inner voice. She believes that Shakespeare is a great tool for all to better understand, history, language, and human relations. She helps students decode Shakespeare’s text to find the humor, passion and drama in this work. This session we will be working on the play MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING.
