Don't you need some Shakespeare in your summer?

Camp Shakespeare is an 18-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 participate in master classes with special guests from the CSF company. 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 at the Mary Rippon Outdoor Theatre.
