Testimonials:

  • The best experience I had all summer!!” - Pyper Brandon (Camp student)

  • My experience with the Shakespeare Camp this summer was absolutely fantastic! The children were amazing and the instructors that came in and helped us put on the show and teach the campers were an absolute delight to work with and taught the kids some valuable exercises and tips that they will hopefully carry with them throughout their theatre experiences. I feel that the camp was very successful. I can say with 100% guarantee that everyone of us, parents included were amazed at the performance level the campers achieved and I would say that some campers even surprised themselves with their abilities. It was because of this camp that the campers learned about the theatre and what is all put into a show and they were able to have appreciation for it. The campers became a team and we worked together a lot. That is what theatre is all about. Working together as a community, to learn and put on a show but to also make lifelong friendships and I would say that Shakespeare on the Sask did just that.” - Tamara Schaan (Camp Instructor)
