Sign ups are open for Winters Shakespeare Workshop (WSW) 2018, a five-week intensive acting camp open to all teens ages 13 through 19.
This year on the new park playground stage, WSW actors will create a complete production of Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” with live music.
Actors train from 6:30-9:30 p.m. five evenings per week, Sunday through Thursday, beginning on Sunday, May 17, at the new City Park, and ending with two free public performances of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” on Friday and Saturday, July 20 and 21, at 8 p.m.
This year’s directing team will be award-winning director, Russell St. Clair, who has directed more than 10 previous WSW productions, and Emma Pfanner Johnson, an experienced actor, writer and teacher, who performed in seven workshop shows while growing up in Winters.
Music director, choreographer and acting coaches complete the WSW 2018 staff.
Teens will bring Shakespeare’s text to life as they break out their performing skills, speaking, dancing, practicing physical comedy, and stage combat.
The cost for this intensive performing workshop is $250. Scholarships are available.
Go to WFoL.org or call 795-3476 for more information, and to sign up to act in the 2018 play.
Winters Shakespeare Workshop is a summer youth program of Winters Friends of the Library.
