A Midsummer's Camp
A Midsummer's Camp is a great place for aspiring young actors to learn and have fun exploring the world and works of William Shakespeare and the magic of theatre.
Our Midsummer Camp immerses students in fun, interactive and educational theater-based activities. The series of weeklong summer theater camps affords students a unique opportunity to work with and learn from the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival’s professional actors/teaching artists in a safe and supportive environment. Featuring exciting activities specifically designed for the young actor in your family, our Midsummer Camp introduces students to the extraordinary works of William Shakespeare, provides a place for participants to sing and dance their hearts out and enables each attendee to develop their talents.
