For kids ages 5-18

Join GreenStage’s professional teaching staff in this special opportunity for enrichment and fun this summer. Kids will rehearse and perform an abbreviated version of one of Shakespeare’s plays, and learn about his life and times along with period dance, music, and swordplay. Everyone gets a role! All costumes and props are provided. Audition and resume tips will also be covered.

Our theatre camps take each student on a personal journey through the world of Shakespeare. Their natural imaginations will be embraced and nurtured as their ability to focus and work as a team increases.  Each week-long camp ends with a free performance (picnic recommended) in the parks for family and friends.

All camps directed by GreenStage Staff. Costumes are provided. Campers should bring a lunch and drink daily.
