In Summer with Shakespeare camp, students work hands-on in a professional theatre environment and gain valuable experience interacting directly with real artists and technicians.
Throughout the course of the camp, students will focus on a variety of theatre skills, including acting, stage combat, mask work, costume and scenic design, swordwork and even illusion.
By the conclusion of Summer with Shakespeare, campers gain an appreciation of all aspects of theatre, while also getting in-depth exposure to a variety of classical plays.
Summer with Shakespeare has flexible options for families with different tracks that your child can sign up for. Offered are full five-week extensive production camps that culminate in the performance of one of Shakespeare’s plays – Julius Caesar for ages 14-18 or Romeo and Juliet for ages 10-13 – where students not only get to act in the production, but also build their own sets and design their own costumes just like the professionals!
A Noise Within Theatre also has weekly track options for its summer camp, allowing students to choose certain weeks, or attend all five sessions! From comedies and tragedies to histories and romance, the individual weeks are themed to appeal to each student’s interests.
