The Cal Shakes Summer Shakespeare Conservatory is back.
Cal Shakes is pleased to again open our outdoor space at the Bruns this summer to students wishing to partake in our Shakespeare Conservatories.  This year we're able to expand our offerings back to two sessions, a four week session for kids who want to take a deep dive and a two week session that's great for kids who want to try the conservatory out and see if it's a fit.  Each conservatory ends with performances by our students on the Bruns Amphitheater Stage.  Attendance is limited, so reserve today.


5 Performances only at The Bruns on May 6-8!
