The Festival is bringing summer camp back for students interested in literary and theatrical explorations. There are multiple offerings to choose from, including weekly morning studio sessions dedicated to fascinating and fun educational lessons as well as a four-week afternoon dedicated performance session that culminates with an abridged Shakespeare production.

Class sizes are limited to 25 students each session.


Morning Studio Sessions: Weeks 1 & 2 (June 5 – 16)

Hungry for Solid Shakespeare Study? Throughout multiple intensive sessions, students will begin their training in the Acting and Vocal techniques used by professional Shakespeare performers. These skills will serve to create a Scenic Showcase performed at the end of the week — family members welcome! ($200 per week)

Afternoon Performance Session (June 5 – 30)

Students will audition, rehearse, and perform an abridged Shakespeare play to be seen on the last Friday session at 2:30 p.m. The play will be chosen after enrollment is finalized to ensure that every student has a substantial role/position in the production. This an amazing opportunity for aspiring actors, stage managers, and directors! ($800 for 4 weeks)

Full Program: Students may attend all the above sessions at a discount rate of $250/week or a total of $1,000.
