2016 Camp Offerings

Weekend Acting Intensive: JULY 8-10, 2016

Explore the Monologues of Shakespeare’s Heroes and Villains
Batman, Wonder Woman, Ms. Marvel, and Captain America...this is the decade of the superhero. Join us at the APT Intensive this year as we celebrate Shakespeare's 400th anniversary by donning the capes, corsets and codpieces of some of his greatest heroes and villains: Lady Macbeth, Hamlet, Henry V, Kate, Rosalind, Iago, Tamora and many more! This year we focus on the rhetoric and scaffolding of a speech, articulation and elocution, as well as balancing logic with emotion. Campers will fly off with one of the greatest speeches of western literature in their utility belts and the skills and know-how to battle other monologues they may face. Join us as we go once more unto the breach dear friends...!

The Weekend Acting Intensive session is designed for campers age 15-19, we will accept 18 campers. The cost of this weekend program is $435. The registration form for the Intensive can be found by clicking HERE.
