This summer, get ready to fall in love with Shakespeare! Along with my wife, Mary, I will offer teens the chance to study acting at the Shakespeare in Performance Camp. The summer camp is an opportunity for high school students and recent graduates to discover the exciting world of theater. What to Expect The camp is held at Ave Maria University in Ave Maria, Florida, where students will have access to all the amenities of our beautiful campus. Our black box theater has a custom built thrust stage based on our style of acting, which hopes to imitate the conditions that Shakespeare himself would have encountered. Campers will work directly with myself and carefully selected members of the Shakespeare in Performance troupe. The troupe is a community of students whose collaboration is what brings each show to life. Campers will receive professional coaching in dramaturgy, voice, movement and more from troupe members who have graduate degrees in theater and literature. In just two weeks, campers will prepare and stage a one-hour show. This year, directors will cast campers into either A Midsummer Night’s Dream or As You Like It. Campers will arrive on Sunday, June 16th, and depart on Saturday, June 29th, which is the same day performances will be held in our new black box theater. As per our schedule, the campers’ daily routine will consist of optional daily Mass, improv games, rehearsals, an acting intensive, good food, free time and more. On Sunday, June 23rd, we’ll be taking the campers on a special off-campus excursion.
