SF Shakes Summer Shakespeare Camp @ TBT

The SF Shakes Summer Camp Program at TBT is BACK! Have fun with your friends and learn all about the world of performance and Shakespeare from trained teaching artists. Campers benefit from a professional atmosphere of creativity, heightened literacy, and self-expression, with ample doses of swordplay, stage combat, theatre games, set building and costuming. Each camp finishes with a mini performance of a Shakespeare play, staged and acted by campers for an audience of family and friends. This enriching camp is appropriate for first timers as well as experienced young actors. Campers will be performing productions of As You Like It, The Tempest, and Playing the Fool (a collection of scenes featuring Shakespeare’s comic figures). It meets at Temple Beth Torah from 7/29 to 8/9, weekdays, 9:00am to 3:00pm (optional aftercare available until 5:30pm). All scripts, materials, and supplies for the performance are included in the $660 enrollment fee (need-based scholarship assistance is available.) Call (415) 558-0888 or visit www.sfshakes.org for information or to enroll. Join us for the 27th season of Shakespeare Camp and find out why half of our campers are returning from previous seasons for more Shakespeare!
