SHAKESPEARE TRAINING AT THE PUBLIC THEATER
For anyone interested in acting, directing or understanding Shakespeare... There is a terrific opportunity, this summer, to study at the Public Theater, one of the most important venues for continuing, modern, American productions of Shakespeare's plays. The Public (we're on a first name basis) has a program they call the Shakespeare Lab, and they are now accepting applications.
Here is a description, directly from The Public:
The highly acclaimed Shakespeare Lab actor training program is now accepting applications until April 9 for its 13-week acting intensive on May 29 - August 25, 2007.

The Application deadline has just been extended to MONDAY, APRIL 9. Scholarships are available to defray the cost of tuition.
Now entering its thirteenth year, The Public Theater Shakespeare Lab presents a unique opportunity for actors to develop their classical skills. The Lab immerses the actor in Shakespeare's plays and language under the instruction of some of the most respected teachers of classical theater in New York and the world. In previous years, faculty has included Christopher Bayes, Michael Cumpsty, John Dias, Kate Forbes, Orlando Patoboy, J. Steven White, and Janet Zarish. Guest Artists have included Liev Schreiber, Oskar Eustis, Roger Rees, Jordan Thaler, Mark Lamos, Dana Ivey, and George C. Wolfe.
During the 13-week Acting Conservatory, Lab Actors will enrich their understanding of Shakespeare and his plays through intensive study and performance; develop skills in clown, movement, voice and teaching; and forge significant relationships with fellow Lab members, teachers and members of The Public Theater's professional community of artists. Numerous graduates of the Shakespeare Lab have gone on to secure roles on Broadway, Off-Broadway, and in regional theaters, in addition to work in film and television.
The Lab provides a unique opportunity for actors to work on their craft during The Public Theater's world-renowned Shakespeare programming at The Delacorte Theater in Central Park.
