Summer Drama Camps presented by Conexus

 

presents Shakespearesask Summer Drama Camps

Imagine a two-week drama camp where you and your friends learn about the beauty and hidden meanings in the language of the world’s greatest playwright.  Then imagine creating your own Shakespearean memories under the skillful direction of a professional actor!  And finally imagine sharing your own performance to be enjoyed by friends and family on-stage at the amazing Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan main stage tent!  Imagination becomes reality this summer as Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan presents its 2019 line-up of Summer Drama Camps!

Youth ages 10 to 13 and 14 to 18 can experience all of this and more including free tickets to a main stage performance of As You Like It, and a Wow Pizza Party wind-up hosted by Artistic Producer Will Brooks!

Our summer drama camps are the perfect place to meet new friends, spend time outdoors, and develop skills like voice and movement, textual analysis, and character creation. This summer's camps will held at the University of Saskatchewan Drama Department and led by their drama students.  The camps will also feature workshop sessions conducted by some of the professional actors performing on our stage as part of our summer company. The drama students and these actors will work together to give students a deep understanding of the life and stories behind the words of Shakespeare, as well as increased confidence and skills in public speaking, teamwork, literacy, adaptability, and much more.  Conexus Credit Union will also give a short presentation to each group on financial literacy!

No experience necessary, just a willingness to explore, have fun and be creative!
