2023 Colorado Shakespeare Festival Camp Shakespeare and Shakespeare Sprite's Instructors

The Colorado Shakespeare Festival seeks part-time instructors for a summer Shakespeare camp for kids and teens in Boulder, Colorado.

Camp Shakespeare Description: In a 3-week session, students ages 9 through 18 are grouped into 16-person classes to stage an abridged Shakespeare play. Each class is paired with one (1) teacher and one (1) teaching assistant while preparing a play for performance. The camp culminates in Saturday morning performances on the Mary Rippon Outdoor Stage (the same stage on which our professional actors appear!).

Shakespeare’s Sprites Description: In a 1-week session, students ages 6 through 9 discover the fun of Shakespeare through lively scene work, Elizabethan costumes, pool-noodle stage combat, storytelling, and crafts. Each week culminates in a showing for family and friends. This program is the perfect way to instill a love of language and theatre in your child.
