Brush up on your Shakespeare


By On Deck Staff

Students looking to learn their stage right from their stage left, or those wanting to learn new techniques to expand their acting abilities will find Cape May Stage’s (CMS) “Summer SHAKESPEAREience” acting camp the perfect opportunity to experience the process firsthand, from first rehearsal to final performance.
This season Cape May Stage’s Education Outreach department builds on the successes of their annual summer camps, by once again offering students their popular Shakespeare program.
Mondays through Fridays from Aug. 3 to Aug. 15, all budding actors ages 9 to 18 will spend time learning from top-notch professionals and theatre artists in a two-week intensive acting program.
The central material of the camp is the work of one of the greatest playwrights in human history, William Shakespeare, whose stories are still popular centuries after their creation.
This summer’s production is Much Ado About Nothing.
This year’s “Summer SHAKESPEAREience” will allow students to explore acting techniques designed for creating believable characters and honest, spontaneous performances.
Under the direction of Cape May Stage’s Education Outreach Coordinator Donald Toal, students will also learn methods for understanding and communicating Shakespeare’s language and style, as well as the background of his life and plays.
CMS teaching artists provide a supportive, insightful and (most importantly) fun environment that allows students to build new skills, communicate with their peers, and expand their horizons. All teens and pre-teens with interest in the arts are encouraged to take advantage of this unique opportunity.
Times are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Robert Shackleton Playhouse, Bank and Lafayette sts., Cape May. The total cost of the two-week camp program is $325.
Further information and registration forms can be found and downloaded at, or can be mailed by request.
