What makes Shakespeare Sports unique? Shakespeare Sports is a traveling theater made up of a collaboration of actors who focus on text and characterization all springing from the plays of William Shakespeare. After graduation from a masters in acting I acted with a company whose focus was first folio technique. In rehearsal I was taught some about the technique and through the process of being in shows I sought out a teacher who taught first folio technique. From this process I learned about companies who focus on what is known as unrehearsed Shakespeare where a company use actor scrolls believed to be a rehearsal tool. It occurred to me in the process of rehearsing with actor cue scrolls that although they might be a rehearsal tool, that with the demands of music and movement as well as stage combat in Shakespeare’s plays, that a company could work mostly on Shakespeare’s stage directions and have actors commit to their characters words, and have the actor cue scrolls on stage.
