Whether it’s Macduff and Macbeth fighting ferociously, Tybalt challenging Mercutio, or Hamlet scuffling with Laertes and grabbing his poisoned rapier, Shakespeare reveled in a good fight scene. And that doesn’t include all the melodramatic murders and suicides.
For kids who are lured by the thought of learning swordplay, A Noise Within offers its annual summer Shakespeare program.
Summer with Shakespear camp (is) a conservatory-style program of acting, improvisation, stage diction, text analysis, kinetic exercises, and stage combat led by classically trained, professional actors, choreographers and designers. (A Noise Within)
The program is designed for kids ages 10-18 years old, lasts three weeks, and is described as “intensive.” Campers will receive exposure to comedies, tragedies, and Shakespeare’s historical plays. Ensemble scene work will be practiced and students will learn about costuming, engage in mask-making, and master Shakespeare’s language.
The program ends with a performance of various scenes and monologues on A Noise Within’s main stage.
