Calling all middle and high school fans of The Bard and his iconic characters such as Hamlet, Juliet, Macbeth, Oberon, Othello, Romeo, Rosalind or Titania. Every year, more plays by William Shakespeare are produced in the United States than any other playwright, composer or lyric writer. This year Franklin will be among them.
Summer with Shakespeare Theatre Camp is offering a chance to learn about the English playwright and get to know some of his greatest works.
Youth in grades 7 to 12 will learn some of his great words, as well as how to perform them as they were originally meant to be performed - out of doors on a public stage (weather permitting). This week's workshops are for students who are either curious or enthusiastic to learn more about this popular creator of the renowned characters.
The camp will run from 3 to 5 p.m. daily July 10 to 14. Shawn Clerkin will direct of the camp, which is being organized by the Barrow Theatre Institute.
The cost to attend is $50. Scholarships to cover the cost of the camp are available through the Rees Charitable Foundation. Apply for a scholarship online at https://forms.gle/Bd16TfBeSJXHw5o16.
