Summer With Shakespeare - A Noise WithinClassical repertory theatre company A Noise Within, will offer its Summer With Shakespeare youth camp June 23 – July 12, 2014, (Monday-Friday 10am – 4pm) for youth aged 10-18. The conservatory-style program of acting, improvisation, stage diction, text analysis, kinetic exercises, and stage combat is led by classically trained, professional actors, choreographers, and designers.

Participants will:

  • Demystify Shakespeare with classes led by professional acting coaches
  • Meet fellow young artists through ensemble scene work
  • Master the language of the Bard through monologues
  • Get crafty with the art of mask making and more
  • Take charge of the stage in stage-combat workshops
  • Perform on ANW’s main stage, just like the professionals

Attendees are placed in age appropriate groups and perform for an audience on ANW’s main stage at a culminating presentation of scenes and monologues from Shakespeare’s plays on Saturday, July 12th at noon. Cost: $850 (not including Summer with Shakespeare t-shirt or tickets to the Final Performance.)

ANW also holds the week-long day camp All the World’s A Stage, for younger children ages 6-9, July 21-25. This camp serves curious children who are introduced to the stage and Shakespeare, while building social skills and having fun. The week’s activities include acting classes, stage combat, costuming and scene-making workshops and crafting galore. Cost: $360 includes snacks and supplies.
