Cal Shakes’ Summer Shakespeare Conservatory for ages 8-18 offers a theater experience rooted in the same passion for artistic exploration and excellence that guides our award-winning Main Stage productions.
We foster self-expression and artistic discipline to engage students in the theater-making process: In the dynamic study and physical experience of developing some of literature’s greatest characters, our students also develop their own.
Participants spend the morning playing and creating in a wide variety of theater disciplines, taught by working theater professionals.
Afternoons are spent in rehearsals. The experience culminates in Shakespeare performances for family and friends at the end of the program.
