TheatreSquared, Northwest Arkansas’ regional theatre, offers its 14th annual Summer Shakespeare Academy, led by professional directors, actors, designers and musicians. The Academy is a two-week "total immersion" in the theatrical world of William Shakespeare, and is designed to bring students into working contact with the creative process, while focusing and advancing the performance skills necessary to create an ensemble production.
This creative camp is perfect for students who are new to theatre as well as for those who are interested in further developing their skills. The program promotes active engagement and nurtures respect for the power of language, the examination of complex ideas, the expression of imagination and a deepened understanding of the richness of human experience. T2 camps enhance life skills of observation, focus, self-confidence, discipline, integrity, commitment and teamwork.
Two public performances of the production of Julius Caesar will take place on the final date of the Academy at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. at Walton Arts Center’s Nadine Baum Studios in Fayetteville.
Students will receive two complimentary tickets for the public performances and additional tickets can be purchased for $5 each.
Note: Students should bring a bag lunch each day.
Scholarships are available through special support from the Nadine L. Baum Charitable Foundation for students with demonstrated financial need. If you are interested in applying, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
