But we’ll be back next summer!
Camps for kids ages 5-17
GreenStage – Seattle’s longest running Shakespeare company – encourages students to take a personal journey through the world of classical theatre. Each week-long camp embraces imagination, nurtures focus and teamwork, and 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.
PEE WEE SHAKESPEAREANS – ages 5-8
In our Pee Wee camps, creative dramatics, games, and art bring your child into the imagination of Shakespeare’s world. They will explore several short pieces of his plays and learn about getting into character, figure out how to tell a story as part of a group, learn a few phrases in the original language, and discover the joys of performing..
Youth Theatre Camps – ages 8-15
Having escaped an assassination plot, Prospero, along with his young daughter, Miranda, finds himself master of a magical island inhabited by spirits and monsters. Using sorcery, he shipwrecks his enemies on the island, with plans to punish them. A wonderful play filled with magic, romance, clowning, and forgivness. Students will memorize and perform a cutting of this play. Besides working on acting, students will play games while learning to speak and understand Shakespeare’s language. .
Youth Theatre Camp – ages 8-15
Using Shakespeare’s words and stories as a starting point, students will create their own play by twisting famous plotlines and characters into a kind of “Fakespeare”! Students will create this parody together using improv and playwriting techniques to shape their own unique play. A few basic stage combat moves may be taught and used.
ROMEO & JULIET
Full Day Youth Camp – ages 10-17
Shakespeare’s most famous play about the tragic love story of the title characters. Street fighting, love, discovery, poison, and plots that go wrong. The week will be spent learning the story and demystifying the original language while memorizing and rehearsing a cutting of the play. We will also train in some stage combat, including basic swordplay; play some games; and possibly fashion some set pieces.
