Two Shimerman prizes are up for auction; The Shakespearean Rosetta Stone, and A Shakespearean Coaching Session.
For The Shakespearean Rosetta Stone, a personal class is offered by Shimerman. “Have you ever wondered how actors (the right ones) (Antaeans) can make Shakespeare’s language so understandable? So conversational? And yet, so thrilling? Antaean Armin Shimerman, will come to your house or your house party, and give his class in Shakespearean Rhetoric. It will make reading Shakespeare aloud or to yourself so much easier and so much more fun. It’s not an acting class, it is an understanding class.”
Bidding for this auction begins at $400.00.
A Shakespearean Coaching Session is a coaching session offered by Shimerman. “Getting ready for a big audition? Buy this, benefit Antaeus and hit a home run.”
The Shakespearean Coaching Session bidding begins at $200.00
