Registration for all 2018 Shakespeare camps open now!
Each summer, the Colorado Shakespeare Festival invites kids ages 6-18 to CU Boulder’s campus to study Shakespeare with CSF professionals. Working in small groups, these students learn about Shakespeare by rehearsing, staging, and performing a shortened play on the Outdoor Mary Rippon Stage (Sprites perform in the indoor Loft Theatre). Camp Shakespeare and Shakespeare's Sprites are a fabulous way for kids and teens to explore theater and Shakespeare in a creative and supportive environment.
In addition to acting training, students participate in master classes with special guests from the CSF company. Campers also work with a stage combat professional to learn the safe way to fight onstage. Tuition includes one ticket to attend a CSF performance.
