City Lit, Chicago - Two Gentlemen of Verona with Oak Park Festival Theatre

August 3-7

"Beshrew me, but you have a quick wit"

For our final week of camp, we are embarking on an ambitious collaboration with Oak Park Festival Theatre and their production of Two Gentlemen of Verona

Join us at our home at City Lit OR at our home away from home in Austin Gardens, Oak Park!  

Two Gentlemen of Verona - City Lit, Chicago (Our usual location)

Join us for a week devoted to our veterans and older students!  We'll be spending our time bringing our Shakespeare scenes to a new level with advanced Folio techniques as well as delving into some of the trickier aspects of Two Gentlemen of Verona.  We challenge you to come up with and new version of the heroines Julia and Silvia who may have some strong words for two gents who won't take no for an answer!  Give this play your own twist and bring it down to Oak Park for a joint performance with our Austin Garden campers!  Recommended for ages 12 and up.

Note: Part of why we are recommending this camp for ages 12 and up is that there are come complex issues that arise in this play, despite the fact that it is a comedy. We look forward to approaching them in the typical Viola Project way: we ask the big loaded questions, we aren't afraid of digging through messy answers, and we do not mince words with the girls while, at the same time, ensuring that the content is being presented in an age appropriate way. It is going to be a week of very interesting and powerful conversations. If you have any questions or concerns about how we approach this content, feel free to reach out at any time.

Final performance: 6:30 in Austin Gardens on the OPFT stage!
Families are encouraged to pack a picnic lunch and stay for the 8pm fully realized performance of Two Gents.
