Shakespeare Workshops



Welcome to my Shakespeare Workshop Website. My name is Julius and I am an actor and theatre practitioner.


Since leaving drama school in 1989 I have worked extensively in the professional theatre both in the UK, Germany and abroad. I have also worked on film and television and for BBC Radio. As an actor, I have been lucky enough to work with some of the UK’s top theatre directors and leading classical theatre companies including the Royal Shakespeare Company and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre as well as musical theatre with Sir Cameron Mackintosh at the world famous Theatre Royal Drury Lane.


In 2000 I became a core member of the London Shakespeare Workout Prison Project. A group of theatre professionals, actors and directors passionate about Shakespeare who would bring Shakespeare Workshops into prisons in London and across the UK. This was amazing work and of equal importance to actor and inmate alike. This work turned me on to the real potential Shakespeare has to unlock minds, inspire creativity, and build confidence. He can open doors to all sorts of possibilities and I have become a true fan. 


This website was set up in order to promote my work as an ambassador of "The Bard" William Shakespeare, and to offer help and inspiration through professional theatre practise and technique.


I hope you find the site useful. You can find more information on details to my workshop approach or look at my actors CV or "Shakespeare for young people" . I continue to combine professional performance work and work in the theatre with my work as a Theatre Artist with young people both in Germany and the UK.
