Reading and Staging Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet


In this two-week camp students will dive into the world of “Fair Verona,” through the words of Shakespeare’s iconic Romeo and Juliet. We will take a multi-media approach to excavate meaning in the Bard’s rich text, exploring not only the language on the page, but the significance of stage direction and adaptation.  

We will read the play in full and consider key themes and concepts as they manifest in the play’s most beloved and pivotal scenes.  Students will try their hands at close reading/literary analysis, sonnet writing, acting/stage directing, and much more.
