Camp Shakespeare 2023

CampShakes is Back!!!

CampShakes is looking for young people in grades 4 through 8 (fall grades) who play well with their friends, are imaginative, energetic, and excited to explore Shakespeare with TAM this summer! The best way to explore Shakespeare is up on your feet and that’s just what happens at CampShakes. Classes in voice, movement, and acting help students explore Shakespeare’s text emotionally, physically, and vocally in preparation for a final performance for family and friends.

Choose from three, one-week sessions July 25 to August 11, Tuesday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (with breaks for snacks, lunch, and arts & crafts projects).

All sessions will take place at TAM’s Rehearsal Studio (Helen Melledy Hall) located at 775 Main St. in Monmouth!
