At American Shakespeare Center Theatre Camp, you will...

  • Bring Shakespeare to life for a modern audience 
  • Work with professionals in the field of Shakespeare education and performance 
  • Attend Master Classes with eminent scholars 
  • Make lasting friendships (some ASCTC alums have even formed their own companies!) 
  • Perform on the stage of the Blackfriars Playhouse 

What: In classes and rehearsals, campers discover how original practices-universal lighting, audience contact, simple sets, live music, taking on multiple roles and cross-gender casting-reveal more about Shakespeare than they could ever learn in the classroom. ASC Theatre Camp participants, ranging in age from 13 to 18, will discover the world of Shakespeare through professional classes and instruction culminating in a one hour performance of early modern work. Campers will interact with professional actors in talk backs and workshops and make lasting friendships within a vibrant community of creative individuals who help challenge each other to play at their limits. Campers gain valuable experiences that serve them in many aspects of their future - in school and beyond.

“These are the youths that thunder at a playhouse” -- Henry VIII, V.iv
