Camp Shakespeare | Session 1
June 18 at 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 1:00pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, repeating until June 29, 2018
Yuba Sutter Arts is pleased to offer a summer theatre program for young people based on the works of William Shakespeare. Students between the ages of 10 and 18 will be given the chance to dive into the world of the greatest playwright in history.
“Shakespeare is easy! The rules are simple,” says Denice Mahler, Director of the Yuba-Sutter Camp Shakespeare program. Denice is a professional actor, director and educator and a member of Actor’s Equity. She worked on the East coast and in the Midwest for many years and then returned home to Yuba City to start a family. Denice has been a Families Learning in Play (FLIP) program instructor for Yuba Sutter Arts and also teaches young people’s theatre classes at Sacramento Theatre Company.
Two separate 2-week sessions will be offered for 6th-8th grade and for 9th-12th grade. Camps run Monday through Friday.
Session I (Grades 6th – 8th): June 18th – 29th 1-3pm
Session I (Grades 9th-12th): June 18th – 29th 3-5pm
Session II (Grade 6th – 8th): July 16th –27th 1-3pm
Session II (Grade 9th-12th): July 16th –27th 3-5pm
The age groups are based on the optimum peer groups for creating positive, collaborative ensembles. The cost for the two week camp and performance is $110 and includes a Camp Shakespeare T-shirt. All sessions will take place at Yuba Sutter Arts’ Burrows Theatre and courtyard in Marysville. Provisions can be made for early drop off and late pick up.
At Camp Shakespeare, students will transform into Shakespeare’s characters through voice and movement work, unravel Shakespeare’s plays with text analysis, develop fundamental acting skills and maybe even learn a few of the basics of stage combat.
Yuba-Sutter Camp Shakespeare is unique in many ways:
- Shakespeare Camp will be held indoors and outdoors in a beautiful setting at Yuba Sutter Arts’ main campus in Marysville
- Students will work on many different aspects of theatre: poetry using Shakespeare’s original practices, movement workshops, and even original music.
- Students will enjoy playing theatre games.
- The two-week session culminates in a final performance for camp families, featuring all of the elements learned during camp.
