SUMMER CONSERVATORY CAMP
Our Shakespeare Conservatory returned in 2022 with both a 4-week and 2-week training option! Classes took place safely outside at the Bruns Amphitheater this summer for grades 6-12. Students developed and improved their performative skills by studying with Bay Area experts in such areas as Acting, Voice, Movement, Text Analysis and more, all while rehearsing one of Shakespeare’s most beloved plays for a performance on the Bruns stage!
9 am-3 pm
9 am-3 pm
Final performances will take place on the last day of each session.
Limited financial aid is available. Please fill out this form if you’re interested.
Non-refundable deposit of $100 due upon registration. Conservatory sessions will be held in person, outdoors, following social distance and masking guidelines as outlined by the Contra Costa County Health Department and the CDC.
Participants spend the morning playing and creating in a wide variety of theater disciplines, taught by working theater professionals. They then spend their afternoons in rehearsals, cultivating, crafting, and putting their newly-acquired skills to the test in fully-staged Shakespeare performances. The experience culminates in Shakespeare performances for family and friends at the end of the program on the famous Bruns stage.
Conservatory participants receive complimentary tickets to at least one Cal Shakes production as well as discounts to other productions.
