Workshops Geared toward High Schoolers

The Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre logoThe Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre is launching a new Youth Workshop Summer Series geared toward high school students (grades 9–12) which will culminate in a performance of William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream for family and friends.

Instructed by professional teaching artists, the series is designed to provide an immersive and hands-on experience behind putting on professional theater productions. Throughout the workshop, students will receive a well-rounded experience that includes casting, costuming, stage combat, directing, set design, and more.

The workshop meets June 27 through July 1 from 10 a.m.–2 p.m., and July 5–9 from 10 a.m.–2 p.m. The performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream will be on Sunday, July 10.
