Upstart Crows (12-18)

Teens have something to say.
Shakespeare gives us the best words in the world.
Be heard. Be an Upstart Crow!


Summer 2020 Upstart Crows Camps are NOW enrolling!
(enroll online)

Camps meet Monday-Friday from 9am-3pm for two weeks. A performance for family and friends is presented on the final day of each session, followed by a celebratory cast party! This summer Upstart Crows will be performing an abridged version of one of Shakespeare's great tragedies. We're not ready yet to reveal which one, but we guarantee it's a good one! Experience welcome but not required. 

At Upstart Crows Camps you'll:

  •  Explore Shakespeare’s text, themes and language
  •  Enhance your performance abilities
  •  Expand your vocal and movement skills
  •  Learn advanced stage combat 
  •  Develop audition technique and more!

All scripts, materials and supplies for the performance PLUS a Shakespeare Camp t-shirt are included for $670!
Optional aftercare is available at most locations for $150 for two-weeks.

Scholarship assistance is available for families in need.
