Shakespeare Slam (Teen Conservatory)

Grades 7-12

August 17-29

M/W/F 5PM-7PM+

Our Teen Conservatory has been crafted to challenge and inspire our most advanced/oldest students.

Students will work with guest artist and professional actress/physical storyteller (Regan Sims), music director (Xavier Taylor), and director/ mentor (Celena Cox) to create a student-driven, one-person show (or duo performance) based on Shakespeare's Sonnets. Students will act as performers, but will also collaborate as designers and directors for other performance pieces. Students will prepare and present their shows as a collective in a live virtual production on August 29 at 7PM.

Students will explore the language of Shakespeare, delve into design, including sound design (through jazz or opera), as well as other areas of design (costume, set, props) and learn about the collaborative process in creating a unique story through the inspiration of other artists and writers.

Students will attend 6 group classes, a tech rehearsal, dress rehearsal, and will rehearse outside of classes via private instruction with our teachers or with members of their student groups.

This is an intensive camp for grades 6-12.
Classes will take place via Zoom technology. Students will receive online instruction and will take several breaks!
