"Totally and incredibly outstanding. Our son loved it, said it was the best 3 weeks of his life, and we can hardly blame him!"

At the ASC THEATRE CAMP, students master critical and creative skills through the performance and exploration of Shakespeare's text and technology. Preview the college experience by living on campus at Mary Baldwin University while working with professional scholars, actors, and directors. Each three-week session culminates with a performance festival on the world's only recreation of the Blackfriars Playhouse Stage.


ASCTC is more than just a summer camp: it's an immersive, residential, theatrical experience. At ASCTC campers discover more about Shakespeare (and themselves) than they could ever learn in the classroom alone.

CAMP MISSION

The ASC Theatre Camp empowers high school students to leap into college life and learning with a secure safety net. With Shakespeare’s text and technology as our touchstone, the ASCTC experience boasts a unique combination of performance training, academic exploration, and the opportunity to meet minds sharing the same passion and persistence. Our mission is to challenge every participant to explore the limits of their infinite potential in a safe, supportive, stable environment. ASCTC is a catalyst for profound self-discovery: students emerge not only with finer control over their craft and better preparation for college, but also with more confidence, capability, and capacity for growth.
