Instructors: Barry Teghtmeyer and Matt Rapport, Director of Education, Heart of America Shakespeare Festival
Fairies, sprites, trolls and witches were all included in plays by William Shakespeare. Offered in partnership with the Heart of America Shakespeare Festival, this camp will explore the art and stagecraft of Shakespearean magic. Create and perform the magical characters from this summer’s production of The Tempest, as well as the plays A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Macbeth. Participants will look at “stage magic” and make their own set design with trap doors, flying drops and more. Finish the week with a live stage performance for friends and family members. Campers will also have the opportunity to perform at the Nelson-Atkins’ “Big Picnic” event on Sunday, July 19.
