ONLINE: Teen Shakespeare Intensive

Ages 13-18
Monday-Friday, February 22-26 | 10 am-12 pm; Final Performance 2/26 at 4 pm

Pay-what-you-can; Suggested cost of $115 for 5-day intensive.

Join actor, director, and teaching artist Marisa Valent for a one-week, online Shakespeare intensive created for teens! We will work together as a group for two hours a day on understanding Shakespeare’s worlds, learning how to interpret and perform text, and how acting for Shakespeare differs from other acting techniques. Students will also be given a 30-minute, one-on-one, private lesson to choose and perfect a Shakespeare monologue for auditions and performance. The camp will center on one of Shakespeare's most famous plays: Hamlet, and at the end of the week, students will put on an abridged digital performance of the play! Finally, students will leave the camp with a Certificate of Excellence in Shakespeare from the Flynn Center. For those students who attended the Shakespeare intensive last summer, this camp is a great way to add on to a strong foundation of knowledge and get another experience performing Shakespeare!

An online performance for friends & family will take place on Friday, 2/26 at 4pm.
