Shakespeare Comedy Camp (Oak Park)


July 16-20
Taught by Emma and Carlyle

"Would that my horse were as fast as her tongue…"

Get your comedy on in this week-long camp on funny ladies spanning from Shakespeare to Chicago! Although women were not allowed on stage in Shakespeare’s comedies, the Bard had the wit to know that ladies can be every bit as shrewd, goofy, ill-mannered, and hilarious as their male counterparts. We’ll take a cue from Beatrice, Rosalind, and our Merry Wives (to name a few) to prove that girls can hold their own in comedy. Join The Viola Project as we explore the age-old tradition of women in comedy while celebrating the great comediennes of today’s Chicago! 

Guest Artist: Workshop with TVP Teaching Artist Jaq Seifert on Commedia Dell'arte
