Mix the kind of comedy mastered by 1600s Frenchman Moliere with Homer Simpson pratfall-type humor and what do you get?

“Radical Classics,” a mid-June, two-week workshop for ages 10 to 13 in Cheek Theatre at Rockford College.

The workshop is one of four offered this summer by Artists’ Ensemble Academy, a recently created offshoot of Artists’ Ensemble Theatre.

Two of the workshops are for youths, and two are aimed at young adults and adults.

“It’s something we have wanted to do,” said Richard Raether, artistic director of the theater group with 14 members that is in the midst of its fifth season.
