Join actor, director, and teaching artist Marisa Valent for a one-week, online Shakespeare intensive created for teens! We will work together as a group for two hours a day on understanding Shakespeare’s worlds, learning how to interprete and perform text, and how acting for Shakespeare differs from other acting techniques. Students will also be given a 30-minute, one-on-one, private lesson to chose and perfect a Shakespeare monologue for auditions and performance. The camp will center on A Midsummer Night’s Dream and at the end of the week, students will put on an abridged digital performance of the play! Finally, students will leave the camp with a Certificate of Excellence in Shakespeare from the Flynn Center.
