Don't you need some Shakespeare in your summer?

Camp Shakespeare is a 17-year-old education program run by the Colorado Shakespeare Festival. Each summer, kids ages 10-18 come to CU-Boulder’s campus and study Shakespeare with CSF professionals. Working in small groups of 16, these students learn about Shakespeare by rehearsing, staging and performing a shortened play. Camp Shakespeare is a fabulous way for kids and teens to explore theater and Shakespeare in a creative and supportive environment.

In addition to acting training, students are coached by a Voice, Speech & Text expert on enunciation, diction and clarity, which will aid them on and off stage. Campers also work with a stage combat professional to learn the safe way to fight onstage. Tuition includes one ticket to attend a CSF performance of Much Ado About Nothing at the Mary Rippon Outdoor Theatre on Tuesday, July 21 (6:30 show).
