Bard Days:
Shakespeare Camp for Youth

August 1-8, 2016, The Great Northern Amphitheatre

The Montana Shakespeare Company presents Bard Days, a dynamic Shakespeare camp for youth entering grades 3-12 (ages 8-18), which celebrates and brings to life the words and world of William Shakespeare. Bard Days takes a bit of culture and makes it a whole lot of fun with this user-friendly introduction to Will’s world.

Montana Shakespeare Bard Days Kids

Using an interdisciplinary arts approach, morning classes (9am-noon) are designed to eliminate “Shakes-fear” in a participatory and fun way. Workshops challenge and engage students with performance, literary and cultural activities, including:

  • Stage Combat
  • Elizabethan Olympics
  • The Language of the Bard
  • Searching for Shakespeare
  • and much more!

Students may continue with additional afternoon classes (1-4pm) that have a special emphasis on Acting & Speaking Shakespeare. Participants receive instruction on classical acting technique and its direct application in rehearsed scene-work. The program concludes with a shared evening of works at A Bard Day’s Night.

With over 45 years combined experience in teaching youth theatre, Bard Days classes will be conducted by MSC’s Artistic Director, Kim DeLong, and Managing Director, Martha Sprague, along with classically trained professionals from across the country joining our acting company this summer.
