Programs During the 16/17 School Year
Monday, February 20th 2017
It's time to get more girls in government! Join the Viola Project for our third annual President's Day workshop dedicated to exploring leadership through Shakespeare's kings, queens and rising stars. We'll spend the day talking government, playing theatre games and exploring our inner world leaders with the likes of Cleopatra and Joan of Arc. Never acted in a Shakespeare scene before? No problem! We welcome all ability levels from newbie to seasoned Shakespearean veteran.
There's no school... so spend the day with us, instead!
This program is being offered TUITION FREE through the generous support of the American Association of University Women. Registering early is highly encouraged!
SPRING BREAK CAMP:
Girl Power in Measure for Measure
CPS Spring break
9am-3pm (drop off begins at 8:30)
How does an ordinary girl speak up against a powerful politician? This is what the unlikely heroine of Measure for Measure, Isabella, must answer. When Isabella shows up at court to save her brother, she encounters the manipulative and sinister Duke Angelo. Without any fear of repercussions, the powerful duke tells Isabella the she must choose between her brother's life or her honor. Armed only with her uncompromising voice, Isabella stands up to Angelo and refuses to accept his terms. She defies societal expectations at every turn, and we can't wait for you to get to know her! Join us for a week of spring break camp that will leave you inspired to speak up for what is right.
Please note that this camp may touch on some of the more mature themes presented in the play.
This program is being offered tuition-free through the generous support of the Chicago Foundation for Women's 100 Day Fund. Additional support provided by the Illinois Arts Council Agency through federal funds.
