Upstart Crows (12-18)

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


We have decided, in consideration of your health and safety, to move all of our camps to a virtual format this summer.

Summer 2020 Upstart Crows Camps have now concluded!  : (

Thank you to all who made summer Virtual Shakespeare Camps a success!
We'll post information about upcoming programs (including Fall Saturday sessions) as soon as it's available. To get updated as soon as possible, sign our contact list and indicate which program(s) you are interested in.

Summer 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 greatest tragedies, King Lear. This is the same title being staged for Free Shakespeare in the Park this summer, so actors will have the opportunity to see another expression of the same play! 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 tote bag are included for $695!  
Scholarship assistance is available for families in need.
