Since 2010, our Shakespeare Camp has been designed to shine a spotlight on budding young talent, both on stage and behind the scenes. Students dive headfirst into acting, improvisation, technical support, and stage management. Our instructors provide structured experiences that focus on building creativity, teamwork, self-reliance, mutual respect, self-esteem, and fun! Shakespeare Camp includes instruction in acting, unarmed stage combat, and in-depth study in scene work in one of Shakespeare’s plays. Students who prefer to take a supporting role will receive training in various areas behind-the-scenes, including the design and creation of costumes, props, set pieces, and more. This camp will conclude with a performance of an abridged version of one of Shakespeare’s most famous plays, The Taming of the Shrew. Campers of all experience levels are welcome. We hope your child can make a scene with Silicon Valley Shakespeare this summer!
Students must be between 8 and 18 years of age.
