Camp Shakespeare

The Heart of America Shakespeare Festival’s summer camps are a unique and fun arts experience your children will never forget! The Festival’s Education Faculty includes theatre professionals, actors and teachers with years of experience performing and teaching Shakespeare.

Will’s Players 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 am-12 noon Monday-Friday. Tuition is $150 per student.
