Under the guidance of theater professionals, participants stage a performance of a Shakespeare play.
At Camp Shakespeare, young actors dive into the world of the greatest playwright in history: William Shakespeare. Under the guidance of theater professionals from the acclaimed, Washington, D.C.-based Shakespeare Theatre Company, participants unravel his plays with text analysis; transform into Shakespeare’s characters through voice, movement and improvisation work; wage battles against mortal enemies with stage combat; and develop fundamental acting skills using classical theater techniques. To culminate the session, participants stage a performance for friends and family in the Alden Theatre of the McLean Community Center.
This summer, Camp Shakespeare at the McLean Community Center will explore “Macbeth,” where witches’ prophecies lead to endless tragedy for Macbeth, Lady Macbeth and all who disrupt their ambitions to be King and Queen of Scotland.
