The theatre kid in your life is sure to love this Shakespeare summer camp! We are hosting a 2-week summer camp where students will be split into two groups based on age and rotate through different workshops before coming together to perform a shortened version of A Midsummer Night's Dream. The Week will be filled with theatre games, crafts, and activities where professional actors that have toured with the company will teach performance and improv skills, vocal work, stage combat, the technical side of stagecraft, and MORE!
What is Rude Mechanicals?
Rude Mechanicals is the name of a specific group of witty characters that are a part of a subplot in A Midsummer Night's Dream. Shakespeare loved to write plays within his plays, so this crew of six craftsmen want to put on a play for the royal wedding. The troupes' rehearsals are a satire of amateur theatre, but ultimately represent an appreciation and love for the performing arts.
