Ship wreak! Mistaken identity! True love! -not to mention: Singing! Slapstick! and Stage combat! Actors, ages 13-19, sign up now for the 2020 Winters Shakespeare Workshop.
WSW is an intensive evening acting camp for teens, beginning June 14, and running for 5 weeks, Sunday through Thurs evenings from 6:30 to 9:30 PM. Actors work with professional director, music director, and acting coaches. With a blast of professional training, actors will work together to create a complete production of Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors with music on the City Park Playground Stage at 8PM on July 17 and 18.
Camp Fee is $250. Scholarships are available. To sign up or to learn more go to WFOL.org or phone 530-795-3476.
Please Note: Sign ups will continue until May 31 when we will read for parts. If you need a scholarship please apply immediately, so we can match your application with a sponsor. Camp fees and/or completed scholarship applications are due on May 31, Sunday.
What about the virus?
Naturally, if Yolo County is still fighting the pandemic in June, our program will be modified. We will decide if we are able to meet in person by May 15, and we will notify all participants on that date by email.
Plan B, if Needed:
If we are unable to meet in person, we will meet, train, rehearse and perform online. Actors will learn how to perform for the camera, and how to work as an ensemble from different locations. Our product will be an original video of The Comedy of Errors with music.
We hoping/planning that this summer’s WSW production of The Comedy of Errors with music on the Park Playground Stage will be a celebration of Winters’ return to in-person community events!
Winters Shakespeare Workshop is a summer youth program of Winters Friends of the Library.
