Twelfth Night Jr. is ideal for the budding actor in your family! After creating a supportive and nurturing ensemble through ensemble building activities and theater games, the campers will explore and rehearse a forty-five minute version of Twelfth Night. This version of Twelfth Night will be directly adapted from the script used in Shakespeare on the Sound. 

Campers will learn acting techniques for creating character, the difference between monologue and soliloquy, general stagecraft, and more. This camp promotes artistic self- expression, collaboration, literacy, self-confidence, and self-reliance. July 5, the cast will perform on the Shakespeare on the Sound stage in Rowayton!
