Tennessee Shakespeare Company
All camps at Hutchison School.
SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES
girls and boys entering grades 7-12
It’s Halloween in June! Confront your fear! No, not of Shakespeare, but come face-to-face with the mysterious and fantastical characters – human and inhuman – that enliven Shakespeare’s greatest works. Campers will learn what it takes to make Shakespeare really scary. This two- week camp will conclude with a camper showcase of ghosts, monsters, and visions.
June 12-23, Monday-Friday 9am-4pm
BE A SPRITE!
girls and boys entering grades JK-1
Explore the magical characters and incidents that populate A Midsummer Night’s Dream and The Tempest. Developing their characters and mastering Shakespeare through song, fairy games, and mask and costume making, campers will present their fantastic achievements in an end-of-camp showcase.
July 31 – August 4, Monday-Friday, 9am-2pm
MAKE ‘EM LAUGH: SHAKESPEARE’S CLOWNS
girls and boys entering grades 2-6
Meet and become one of Shakespeare’s clowns! Explore and master the physical and verbal comedy and scenes that occur in almost all of Shakespeare’s work. Whether you want to be sad, happy, bumbling, or pompous, Shakespeare has a part for you. Campers show off in an antic showcase at camp’s end.
July 31 – August 4, Monday-Friday, 9am-4pm
