All About Shakespeare! 
Half-Day 9:30 am-12:30pm or Full Day 9:30am-3:00pm
This Shakespearean comedy centers on the twins Viola and Sebastian, who are separated in a shipwreck. Viola (who is disguised as a boy) falls in love with Duke Orsino, who in turn is in love with the Countess Olivia. Upon meeting Viola, Countess Olivia falls in love with her thinking she is a man. A hilarious plot filled with mismatched relationships, Twelfth Night for Kids is a great way to expose children to the fun of Shakespeare- you will learn about Shakespearean history, period movement, and acting

techniques. We will also share some crafts and have other fun introductions to Shakespeare.

and Our Summer Productions for 2022

Into The Woods Logo.jpg

July 11- 29, grades 5-12 and Alumni- Full Day Camp
Into The Woods

The Narrator introduces the cast of characters, each with a wish: the Baker and Baker’s wife long for a child but cannot conceive, Jack desperately wishes his cow Milky White would once again provide milk so he wouldn’t have to sell her, and Cinderella dreams of attending the king’s ball and someday being free of her cruel stepmother and step-sisters. When all their tales, and the tales of other fairy tale characters, lead to the woods and become intertwined, dreams come true and wishes are granted. Their happiness has consequences, though, and the characters are forced to band together to save their world from destruction.

For Summer Camps, 2022
As we look forward to a return to in-person classes, please note that all of these rules for our 2021 camps may be altered depending on current CDC & State of Colorado guidelines. We will be in touch before the camp begins with updates and expectations.

Lunches- Each student must bring a nut-free snack or lunch (July camp only) and drink each day. Water fountains are available and each student should bring a labeled water bottle or bottles for their use. 

Before & After Care are not available this year.

 

Inside & Out- We plan to spend each camp outdoors at the Historic Elitch Theater.  In case of inclement weather, we will take cover at the beautifully restored carousel shell. Please be sure campers are dressed for the weather. Students can come with sunscreen applied, or they will need to apply it themselves.

 

Hand sanitizer will be available, and students are welcomed and encouraged to bring their own containers, as well.

 

Masks: Following current CDC & state guidelines, masks are not required outdoors during camp. All adult staff have been vaccinated. If you prefer that your child wear a mask, please let the camp lead teacher know & we are happy to help insure that they are masked at all times. Please be sure your child has a mask each day.
