Camp Shakespeare Applications Due April 15
Fri, April 15, 2011 - 11:30 PM
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 5 through Saturday, June 18. The second session of Camp Shakespeare is Sunday, June 26 through Saturday, July 9. The plays for each of these sessions will be selected at a later date.
If you are interested, you should take a look at the 2011 Camp Information Guide. Applications are available on our website, or you can email Doc Ayres at firstname.lastname@example.org. The completed file should be sent to Professor Jim Ayres, P.O. Box 202, Round Top, TX, 78954 before April 15, 2011.
