Camp Shakespeare

Camp Shakespeare is a unique and fun summer arts experience your kids will never forget! Students will collaborate, learn language and presentation skills and build confidence while creating their own version of “THE TEMPEST”. Acting, visual art, dance, music, stage combat and storytelling make this a delightful camp, taught by professional actors and theatre artists in a neighborhood near you!

This camp is a one-week, half-day camp designed for our youngest Shakespeareans. It’s perfect for kids who have participated in Bard Buddies or are brand new to the Bard. Will’s Players will explore the life and times of Shakespeare and the basics of theatre, along with fun crafts, games, and improvisations.  During the final class, students have the opportunity to share their work with family and friends.

Will’s Players runs for one week, from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. Monday – Friday. Tuition is $165 per student.
