Supernatural Shakespeare | Ages: 8 – 11

July 15 @ EST 9:00 am - July 19 @ EST 12:00 pm


Calling young thespians! We’ll spend the week walking into the world of William Shakespeare, with a special focus on his use of the supernatural in his plays. We’ll explore his life and times and unlock the secrets of his use of language. We’ll play theater games, peek into some of his otherworldly plots and characters, and even learn how to ward off the curse of The Scottish Play! Come cook up some chaos, incite some sibling rivalry, get serious about comedy, look lightly at tragedy, and create some conflict as we put monologues and scenes together to construct a performance of our own! No previous experience needed.

Note: There will be an optional evening field trip to see the Rochester Community Players’ annual Shakespeare production in Highland Park. Students in past years have loved meeting the director and talking with members of the cast about the show and their work.
