CSF Summer Camps 2020


All 2020 Colorado Shakespeare Festival events (including summer camps) have been postponed until summer 2021 as part of the CU Boulder campus response related to COVID-19. We will be in touch with families who are registered for camps soon regarding next steps. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we navigate this unprecedented situation. For more information: CU Presents public health update

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 CSF's performance of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" on July 19, 7:00 pm.
