Play on! Kentucky Shakespeare offering Spring Break Acting and Playwriting Camps for Middle Schoolers

March 21, 2012

By InsiderLouisville.com Staff | Published: March 21, 2012

In a day when everyone’s a star, Kentucky Shakespeare is giving aspiring thespians a chance to learn from the greatest playwright who ever lived and the greatest fighter.
Kentucky Shakespeare is collaborating with Locust Grove and the Muhammad Ali Center April 9 through April 13, creating two new play writing and acting spring break camps for Louisville-area middle schoolers.

From the Kentucky Shakespeare news release:
The play writing camp will include a unique educational experience held on the historic Locust Grove campus. During the week-long introduction to theater, campers will play games, learn elements of play writing, design costumes, and write their own short play. On the last day, campers will perform their plays for family and friends.

The second Spring Break Camp for acting is Conflict Resolution at the Muhammad Ali Center. Throughout the week, campers will learn about the most influential playwright in history along with one of the more inspiring athletes of all time. This interactive program will allow students to express themselves through their own words, the words of Shakespeare, and the principles of Muhammad Ali, culminating in an invited performance for family and friends.


Kentucky Shakespeare is the largest in-school arts education provider in the Commonwealth, serving 75,000 students in a 5-state region each year, according to the release.
