THE BRONX - Britain's Royal Shakespeare Company has hopped across the pond to tutor New York City students in acting.

The troupe joined the "Summer on the Hill" workshop, which takes place Saturdays throughout the year and during the summer at the Horace Mann School. Gifted students from around the city were invited to attend.

Some of the students had never seen Shakespeare performed before. Others were aspiring actors using the workshop to refine their skills.

The company says it plans to return to the school several times annually for the next three years.
