An iconic romance of star-crossed lovers ignites when Romeo and Juliet meet at a masked ball. But with hatred and disapproval dividing their families, can their love find its way? In a play filled with passion–from its breathtaking poetry to thrilling swordplay–Shakespeare holds the mirror up to life as we see the tragic consequences of choices fueled by hate. Silicon Valley Shakespeare presents a traditional take on an abridged version of this timeless tragedy that still rings true today.
Started in 2010, our Shakespeare Camp shines 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 a supporting role receive training in various areas behind the scenes, including the design and creation of costumes, props, set pieces, and more.
Camp culminates with a performance of an abridged version of Romeo and Juliet. 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.
