Join us for Advice To The Players' two-week camps!
These camps are theatre experiences in which teaching artists immerse youth (ages 4-17) 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.
2023 Camp has ended; stay tuned for next year!
Join us in July for an exciting journey into Shakespeare’s language, characters and plays. Our two- and four-week camps are outdoor theater experiences that immerse young people of all ages in the art and craft of acting, and the terms and techniques used to create Shakespeare’s plays.
