Interlochen Arts Camp 2020 is pivoting this summer to Interlochen Online. Learn more about our interactive online summer arts series.

Shakespeare Bootcamp Institute is a 1-week intensive designed to immerse young actors in the works of William Shakespeare. Participants will discover techniques to unlock the text and bring the Bard’s words to life. All students will actively participate in a mix of sonnets, monologues and scenes selected to highlight the wide range of possibilities within Shakespeare’s work. The session will culminate with a workshop presentation that will demonstrate increased understanding of classical text. Students will also have the opportunity to interact with members of the Interlochen Shakespeare Festival.
