Camp Shakespeare performs The Tempest
Camp Shakespeare, a component of The University of Texas Shakespeare at Winedale Program, is a two-week residential camp for young people, ages 10-16, held in the small town of rural Round Top, Fayette County, Texas, with daily activity at the University of Texas Winedale Historical Center, located five miles away.
Camp Shakespeare is dedicated to exploring a Shakespearean play through performance. This is an experience in daily performance, in exploring language and character, in doing, playing at play. It is not an "acting" or "theater" camp. Here, we celebrate the creative process. We do not rehearse "shows."
The first session of Camp Shakespeare is Sunday, June 6 through Saturday, June 19. First session students will be studying and performing As You Like It. The second session of Camp Shakespeare is Sunday, June 27 through Saturday, July 10. Second Session students will be studying and performing Romeo and Juliet.

The completed file should be sent to Professor Jim Ayres, P.O. Box 202, Round Top, TX, 78954 before April 15, 2010.
