Live Arts Acting & Production Boot Camp: The Tempest By William Shakespeare
How many goodly creatures are there here!
How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world,
That has such people in’t!”
-William Shakespeare (Miranda, The Tempest)
Put on a Shakespeare play in two weeks?!? YES!! This is rapid-fire theater making, Live Arts style. You’ll become part of the Live Arts Youth Theater Company troupe of actors who will move quickly with the guidance of a Live Arts director and artistic team to produce a one-act version of Shakespeare’s thrilling play, The Tempest. Shipwrecks, complicated romances, sly spirits, schemes, and spells are all here. And if you’ve got an itch to roll up your sleeves, sharpen your pencil, and get in rehearsal then this is the show for you.
In the first week of camp, you’ll go through the audition process and participate in a crash course in all you need to know to act in a Live Arts Shakespearean production, including script analysis, voice & movement work, and exploration of Shakespearean text. In the second week of camp, you and your faculty of seasoned theater artists will get deep into rehearsals as you focus on building stage presence, creating a character, and making bold choices. Finally, the camp will culminate in two public performances. This is your chance to act in a Live Arts show while making new friends, collaborating with professional theater artists and practicing your acting skills! All roles are available and enrollment is limited so that every performer will be featured.
