A Noise Within presents SUMMER WITH SHAKESPEARE, a three-week summer program for youth ages 10 to 18 which demystifies Shakespeare’s verse and grooms young artists to be Shakespearean performers. On a deeper level, this camp, which runs from June 25 to July 14, 2013, at the company’s new state-of-the-art theatre in Pasadena, illuminates a connection to the patterns of the human condition inherent in Shakespeare’s works.
Summer With Shakespeare is a conservatory-style program of acting, improvisation, stage diction, text analysis, kinetic exercises and stage combat led by classically-trained, professional actors, choreographers and designers. Participants gain appreciation for Shakespeare’s verse through a unique exposure to the Bard’s classic comedies, tragedies, and history plays. They also have the opportunity to enhance their acting and public speaking skills and build self-confidence on the stage. At the program’s conclusion, participants perform scenes and monologues from Shakespeare’s plays for an audience on A Noise Within’s main stage.
Two registration options include Full Day, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm, and Summer School Special, 1:00 – 4:00 pm. The cost for either session is $825. Single weeks are also available in the mornings, and before- and after-care are offered. Registration deadline is June 18, 2013. Space is limited. A Noise Within is located at 3352 E. Foothill Blvd., Pasadena, CA 91107. To register for Summer With Shakespeare, or for questions, call 626-356-3104 or visit www.ANoiseWithin.org.
