3-day camp (M-W in Hyde Park; T-Th in Edgewater)

"Lord what fools these mortals be!"

Are you practicing your best Wakandan warrior moves?  Are you counting down the days until Wonder Woman 2 comes out? Shakespeare's plays are also filled with superheroes - and super villains! From Prospero’s magic to the Weird Sisters' spells, Shakespeare is full of mutants, magic, and mayhem!  Whether you're a mischievous fairy like Puck, or a misshapen monster like Caliban, we've got a role for you. Join us as we combine powers to play all of the great roles Shakespeare wrote -- maybe even create a few characters of our own!

Every Inch a Queen

President's Day - Monday, Feb 19
9am-3pm
Ages 10-14

It's time to get more girls in government! 

Join the Viola Project for our fourth 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!
