Join us for Advice To The Players' two-week camps! These camps are theatre experiences in which teaching artists immerse youth (ages 5-17) in the art and craft of acting, and the terms and techniques used to create Shakespeare’s plays. These experiences and skills include theatre games, clown skills, movement and dance—all of which culminates into a rousing performance of Shakespeare’s work at the end of camp, adapted by our teaching artists and campers.
