Actors sign up now!
Teens, ages 13-19, can sign up now for the 2017 Winters Shakespeare Workshop –
Five intensive weeks of training and rehearsal, ending in a production of The Tempest by Shakespeare. The show this summer will be set on a tropical island.
What is Winters Shakespeare Workshop?
Winters Shakespeare Workshop is a summer acting camp open to all teens ages 13-19. Actors work with professional director, Andrew Fridae, to develop a range of performing skills including stage combat, physical comedy, singing and dancing, special effects, and more! This year, actors in this 5-week workshop will perform a complete production of Shakespeare’s The Tempest on the stage in Winters City Park. As always, music and a live band will be big part of this show. There will be opportunities to sing, and dance, as well as to develop your acting skills. Acting, dancing, and combat coaches from Winters and UCD will complete the workshop training team.
Now in our 19th season, Winters Shakespeare Workshop offers teens an intensive blast of training in all aspects of theatrical production. Five evenings a week for 5 weeks, actors hone their performing skills working with coaches, director, musicians, and each other. Some choose to work on set, props, costumes in their afternoons, others have participated in community outreach to younger children in the Winters community. The final performance, offered to the Winters community for free in our city park, is a high energy show for the entire community.
