We offer opportunities to engage creatively with professional artists and fellow students through expressive language, deep acting process, active investigation of historic context, and public performance of Shakespeare's plays.
Cal Shakes’ Summer Shakespeare Conservatory for ages 8–18 offers a theater experience rooted in the same passion for artistic exploration and excellence that guide our award-winning Main Stage productions. We foster self-expression and artistic discipline to engage students in the theater-making process: Participants spend the morning playing and creating in a wide variety of theater disciplines, taught by working theater professionals; afternoons are spent in rehearsals. The experience culminates in Shakespeare performances for family and friends at the end of the two-, three-, and five-week sessions.
We have two sessions in the Oakland Area:
Oakland School for the Arts, Downtown Oakland
July 7-July 25
Zion Lutheran School, Piedmont
July 28-August 8
