This collection of essays examines the method and traditions of Elizabethan actors' training. The work includes chapters on the education of William Shakespeare, the training of the apprentices in the professional theatre companies, the organization and instruction of the "Boys Theatre Companies" and recommendations for application in contemporary classrooms. The first book in print on this subject, this volume will be of interest to both theatre and English teachers. Because some chapters focus on the performance education of young adults and children, many of the recommendations can be applied to performance training.
