Camp II focuses on an intermediate study of Shakespeare, with additional classes in acting methods and stage combat. Camp III emphasizes an advanced study of acting techniques and Shakespeare’s text. Students in both Camps II and III will perform in a selection of iconic scenes from Shakespeare’s comedies, histories, and romances.
This summer features the brand-new Camp IV. Elementary students will be immersed in the early fundamentals of theatre and of Shakespeare with beginning activities in acting, voice, stage combat, set & costume design and much more, all led by professional theatre artists.
