What will a typical camp day look like?

10:00 – 10:30

We will begin each day with a welcome, followed by a physical/vocal warmup session led by one of our teaching artists. While campers will need to be able to hear the teaching artist (and ideally see him/her), the focus will be on some form of creative movement.

10:30 – 10:45
Morning break

10:45 – 12:15

Each morning will consist of two to three modules focusing on some aspect of Shakespeare and Theater – voice, mask work, stage combat, the World of Shakespeare, storytelling, etc. Some modules will require that participants be focused on the leader and the class, some will be more audio-based, requiring listening, but not watching, and some will present a challenge or task that will require the participant to get away from the computer screen completely, then report back!

12:15 – 1:00
At lunch, we will have an optional “hangout” room, where participants can freely socialize with one another, but will also encourage them to step away from their computers.

1:00 – 2:00

After lunch, we will break into scene groups. Participants will be assigned a scene and a character, and will be put in a breakout room with their director and fellow cast members. This is the time of day when it will be most important that the participant have a quiet environment.

2:00 – 2:15
Afternoon break

2:15 – 2:50
Improvisation / Theater Games – each day, we will play a different group improv or theater game, adapted for use in the Zoom environment

2:50 – 3:00
Closing “circle”
