Dates: July 19th-30th 2021
From backstage to centre stage – learn what it takes to bring a play to life.
About this event:
In this fun and collaborative drama camp your child will be immersed in the exciting world of theatre making. Every year children and youth from across Toronto come together for two weeks to design, build, and perform an adaptation of one of Shakespeare’s plays. This year the Nobles will explore and perform our own adaptation of Shakespeare’s stormy play, The Tempest, which we plan on performing professionally in August!
From prop, set and costume design to scene and movement work campers will take a hands on approach – all culminating in a fun and exciting performance for family and friends at Artscape Weston Common in North West Toronto.
Theatre is a team sport that fosters many transferable skills and builds lifelong friendships. This camp provides the unique opportunity for campers to collaborate with their peers and to work with professionals every step of the way!
Shakespeare Summer Camp teaches young theatre makers what it really takes to bring a play to life.
