2017 Summer 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 coming to that camp on the picturesque riverbank in downtown Saskatoon and 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 2017 line-up of Summer Drama Camps!
Youth ages 11 to 13 and 14 to 18 can experience all of this and more including free tickets to a main stage performances of Twelfth Night, a chance to meet some of the actors during the rehearsal process, and a wind-up BBQ 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. Our camps will be led by professional actors performing on our stage as part of our summer company. These actors will 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.
No experience necessary, just a willingness to explore, have fun and be creative!

All students are invited to and encouraged to attend a rehearsal of the Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan Festival Main Stage shows on Sunday, June 25th. Time of rehearsal TBA.
Each student will receive three tickets to the August 18th performance of Twelfth Night: Two adult tickets and one student ticket. Any additional family members wishing to attend with the student will be able to do so for a discounted rate of $25/ticket for Adults, and $16 for Students/Seniors.
Prior to the August 18th performance of Twelfth Night we will be holding a wrap-up BBQ for all students of the Summer Drama Camps and their families at 6:30pm. Final numbers for this BBQ are required by August 15th. Each student and family member will be entitled to a hamburger and non-alcoholic beverage at the festival.
Each student will also receive a voucher for two tickets to any Mainstage performance to be used at their leisure.
All camps will be held at the Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan Festival Site. Because classes are held at an outdoor venue, we need to be mindful of weather. If weather is deemed unsafe by senior staff, classes will be cancelled and students will be sent home.
