Newton, NC – The Green Room Community Theatre is pleased to announce the dates for its 21st annual Summer Shakespeare Theatre Institute. This unique experience is a week-long theatre day camp in which students 1st grade through 12th grade explore the exciting world of William Shakespeare and his times. At the end of the week, they will participate in a production of one of his plays! Using Shakespeare as a guide, participants learn more about acting, auditioning skills, costumes, scenery, how to memorize, mask making, lights, make-up, becoming a character on the stage, and working as an ensemble. These are key elements to becoming a better performer (and it can help with English classes, too).

This year, you are invited to experience one of Shakespeare’s most well-known tragedies… Romeo and Juliet. For added interest, we will set this show under the sea!

The dates for this year’s camp are July 16 – 21, 2018. The camp will run Monday – Saturday from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm each day. On Saturday, July 21st at 1:30 pm, the students will present Romeo and Juliet in a performance for family and friends.

Camp will be held at The Green Room’s home, the Old Post Office Playhouse located at 10 South Main Avenue in Newton. To encourage pre-registration, we have an Early Registration Discount.
