"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

Using the exploration and performance of Shakespeare's technology and text, participants of the ASC Theatre Camp hone the critical and creative skills required to effectively navigate the daily challenges of adult life. We're not just training the next generation of Shakespearean actors -- we're training the next generation of fully engaged human beings.
