“Give me my robe, put on my crown”

While the young Queen Elizabeth was handed a realm saddled with debt and bloodied by conflict, she used her skills to turn the fate of her country around- and all while refusing to marry! For this weeklong camp, we’ll spend some time with Shakespeare’s Queens. Whether they’re out to poison someone, determined to keep their heads, or ready to lead an army into battle, we’ll dive into royal characters all week, and come out better leaders ourselves!

Much Ado About Nothing (Oak Park)
299.00 375.00

Aug 5-9

**Early bird discount available through the month of February**

“I would my horse had the speed of your tongue”

Join us for one of Shakespeare’s most hilarious comedies. A story of he-said, she-said, Much Ado About Nothing is a play about communication gone terribly wrong. When Claudio hears that his fiancé Hero has been cheating on him, he throws a royal temper tantrum. Rather than believe her, it’s up to Hero’s cousin Beatrice and her friends to set the story straight. In addition to our scene work, we’ll delve into how modern day social media can connect and disconnect, as well as how to root out fake news before it drives you mad.
