New Summer Camps!

In conjunction with MEF, we are proud to present two summer camp offerings for High Schoolers!

Shakespeare Master Class
July 6 – 10 from noon – 4PM
SMMHS Theater,  $185

NYC Master acting instructor Kate Forbes will teach a fun introduction to playing the Bard’s beloved characters. Appropriate for both new and experienced actors, we will take Shakespeare off his pedestal and discover the fun of speaking his language. Class will include warmups both vocal and physical, and unpacking the structure of Shakespeare’s verse using group and individual work on a variety of his writings, including the sonnets, with a final reading performance on the last day of class.

 

Playwriting                    
July 13 – 17, from 1PM – 4PM 
SMMHS Theater,  $175

The only summer playwriting workshop for teens! Have you always wanted to write a play but aren’t sure how to go about it? Come learn the craft from Kate Forbes, a working equity actor and instructor who has taught playmaking for over 5 years. Using writing exercises, improvisation and other theater games, playwrights will learn about the basic structure of drama. In addition to the basics of playwriting, you will learn a little about acting, direction and set design and how the way you write can influence them. At the end the week you will have written your own 10 minute play that will be performed on stage in a live reading by adult actors.
