Upstart Crows (12-18)

Teens have something to say.
Shakespeare gives us the best words in the world.
Be heard. Be an Upstart Crow!


All Summer 2019 Upstart Crows Camps are NOW ENROLLING!

Camps meet Monday-Friday from 9am-3pm for two weeks. A performance for family and friends is presented on the final day of each session, followed by a celebratory cast party! This summer Upstart Crows will be performing an abridged version of Shakespeare's complex comedy The Taming of the Shrew. Experience welcome but not required.

  •  Explore Shakespeare’s text, themes and language
  •  Enhance your performance abilities
  •  Expand your vocal and movement skills
  •  Learn advanced stage combat 
  •  Develop audition technique and more!

Fee for the 2-week camp is $660. All materials and supplies provided. Scholarship assistance is available for families in need. Optional aftercare is available at most locations for $150 for two-weeks.
