After years of hearing from teachers and other adult Shakespeare lovers that they would like a summer camp experience that would allow them to explore Shakespeare, the ASC Education Department introduced the No Kidding Shakespeare Camp. This week long experience for adults is intended for enthusiastic audience members, and has included teachers (who can receive credit for in-service hours*), lawyers, doctors, authors, and many other professionals who spent a week in beautiful downtown Staunton, enjoying plays, play, and good company. Campers attend lectures, see plays in the 2014 Summer Season, participate in workshops and master classes, enjoy cast parties with the actors of the ASC, observe the ASC rehearsal process, and work on scenes with fellow participants during their time at camp.
ASC’s sixth annual No Kidding Shakespeare Camp will be take place 13-17 July 2015 and will celebrate the theme of History.
"I walked away not only with practical knowledge, but with some new insight into myself." -- 2012 Camper
When: 13-17 July 2015
What: The American Shakespeare Center's No Kidding Shakespeare Camp for Adults is an illuminating experience for teachers, enthusiastic audience members, and anyone interested in Shakespeare or plays. Campers will learn about the world of Shakespeare by studying scansion, meter, rhetoric, architecture, company models, cue scripts, and more. During the week-long camp, participants will work with master teachers and lecturers in the Blackfriars Playhouse and will explore several scenes with their fellow participants.
Who: Campers will work with Education staff and artists, master teachers, scholars, expert lecturers, ASC actors, and Dr. Ralph Alan Cohen, author of ShakesFear and How to Cure It.
Where: Lectures, workshops, and activities will take place in downtown Staunton, at the Blackfriars Playhouse and at the historic R. R. Smith Center. Residential campers will stay in dorms on the Mary Baldwin College campus, just a block away from the Blackfriars Playhouse. We also offer special rates at the Stonewall Jackson Hotel.
Cost: 2015 fees TBD
Sucessful participation in the camp will yield approximately 30 hours of Professional Development towards re-certification.
"I'm looking forward to a long and fruitful relationship with the ASC and to spreading the gospel. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!" -- 2011 Camper
