We are delighted to offer classes designed to help students better understand Shakespeare’s text, better represent themselves as artists, and develop skills to make them stronger actors and technicians.

Silicon Valley Shakespeare offers a summer camp with theatre training just for kids and teens! Students will dive headfirst into acting, improvisation, and unarmed stage combat, plus behind-the-scenes action, including creating costumes, props, set pieces, and more. No prior experience is needed, and every student will be cast. Whether you’re a beginner to the Bard or already savvy on stage, come make a scene with us this summer![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator color=”white” style=”dashed” el_width=”80″ el_class=”.widget-title”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css_animation=”left-to-right”]

Takin’ It to the Schools

Silicon Valley Shakespeare’s in-school outreach program brings the excitement of live theatre off the stage and into your classroom. We offer a variety of workshop topics that have been carefully developed to incorporate the California State Performing Arts Standards, reinforcing and complementing general education goals. Additionally, our individual workshops can be expanded and/or combined into a series of classes, providing a built-in professional staff development component in theatre education for the participating classroom teachers. Our instructors are not only experienced educators, but are also working professionals in their fields, bringing a unique, invaluable blend of professional expertise combined with a gift for and love of teaching.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”2465″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” css_animation=”right-to-left” css=”.vc_custom_1442363272344{padding-left: 30px !important;}”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator color=”white” el_width=”80″ el_class=”.widget-title”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”2474″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” css_animation=”left-to-right” css=”.vc_custom_1442363333652{padding-right: 30px !important;}”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css_animation=”right-to-left”]
