Summer Conservatory

Outdoors at The Bruns

Grades 6-12

Our Shakespeare Conservatory will take place safely outside at the Bruns Amphitheater this summer! Students will develop and improve their performative skills by studying with Bay Area experts in such areas as Acting, Voice, Movement, Stage Combat and more, all while rehearsing one of Shakespeare’s most beloved plays for a performance on the Bruns stage.
