Summer Young Company is for young actors ages 17 through 19 who wish to engage deeply with Shakespeare’s work through a more rigorous exploration of text, complemented by introductory voice, movement, ensemble building, and more.
Throughout the program, participants will develop connections and build ensemble; immerse themselves in Shakespeare’s world; uncover associations between their lived experiences and Shakespeare’s plays; expand their curiosity and awaken their imaginations; engage with the natural world; develop the art of story-telling through the actor-audience relationship, and attend performances, lectures, and/or talkbacks within the Shakespeare & Company Summer Season. This program culminates in a final performance to be shared with family, friends, and Company members.
