Open House on Monday for past and prospective campers

On Monday, February 16, Cal Shakes campers and campers to be are invited to the Holy Names High School Auditorium (4660 Harbord Dr. in the Montclair district of Oakland) for a Summer Theater Programs Open House event. From 6:30-8pm, attendees will have the opportunity to reconnect with friends, learn more about the Summer Theater Programs by meeting campers and teachers, and, for first-timers, interview for Five-Week Conservatory.

With Shakespeare as their inspiration, participants in our Summer Theater Programs spend the morning studying acting, voice, physical comedy, stage combat, movement, improvisation, text, and more; afternoons are for rehearsals, practicing and exploring the scenes or plays that will be performed on each program’s last day. This summer, Cal Shakes is pleased to offer both Five- and Two- Week Conservatories at Holy Names in the Oakland Hills, in addition to our Two-Week Camp at Bentley Upper School (Lafayette). While slightly different in class content and structure, each program is suitable for all ages. Scholarships are available, as is transportation assistance. Five-Week Conservatory is the only program that requires an interview—no audition necessary, though.
