Training & Performance Workshops

Macbeth

Birnam Wood, Scotland

Our Philosophy:


Actors learn by doing, and we want you to learn from the world’s most acclaimed artists, many of whom have worked or trained at the Royal Shakespeare Company, the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, Shakespeare’s Globe, etc.


Years ago, OSC founder and Kennedy Center Award-winner Ron Destro had the life-altering experience of learning from these great artists, and he wants others to have that same magical opportunity. That is why we started these workshops, and have committed to providing the very best experience for all of our actors.

“Working with Ron Destro and Malcolm McKay in Macbeth, was one of the most enriching experiences of my acting career. In rehearsals and on-site, these consummate professionals "raised the bar" for each participant and provided a unique opportunity to grow both as actors and as human beings. Our performance in Birnam Wood was eerie and wondrous, just as Shakespeare intended. Can't wait to go back this summer!” - N.W.

“This OSC workshop was the experience of a lifetime, and I’ll always be thankful to you for providing such a cool opportunity…. I honestly believe your Onsite Shakespeare workshops are important for the theatre and the endurance of Shakespeare’s plays in the next generation of actors. “ - P.E.

“I have been a friend of Ron Destro for some time, and can confirm his great gifts as a writer, director and educator.”    

- award-winning actor Michael York

“Ron Destro is one of those rare people of the theater who cares as deeply about the theater as anyone I’ve ever worked with, including Pina Bausch, Richard Foreman, Andrei Şerban, Miloš Forman, Lar Lubovitch and Twyla Tharp. His knowledge is extensive and accessible, not pompous. He invites all to the table. There is something for everyone in his joyous message. He introduces to all, ALL, the idea that Shakespeare is indeed a man for all ages. I consider it a privilege to know him and to have worked with him.” 

- Oscar-winner F Murray Abraham
