Silicon Valley Shakespeare’s education program is designed to meet the specific needs of Silicon Valley youth with an interest in the performing arts. We are delighted to offer classes designed to help students better understand Shakespeareâ€™s text, better represent themselves as artists, and develop skills to make them stronger actors and technicians.

Our Shakespeare Camp is designed to shine a spotlight on budding young talent, both on stage and behind the scenes. Students dive headfirst into acting, improvisation, technical support, and stage management. Our instructors provide structured experiences that focus on building creativity, teamwork, self-reliance, mutual respect, and self-esteem. Shakespeare Camp includes instruction in unarmed stage combat, acting, and in-depth study in scene work in one of Shakespeareâ€™s plays. Students who prefer to take a supporting role will receive training in various areas behind-the-scenes, including the design and creation of costumes, props, set pieces, and more. This camp will conclude with a performance of an abridged version of Shakespeareâ€™s magical exploration of humanity, The Tempest, for friends and family on the final day of class. Students of all experience levels are welcome. We hope your child can make a scene with Silicon ValleyÂ Shakespeare this summer!
