Marin Shakespeare Camps
Marin Shakespeare Company is offering a variety of in-person summer camps for all ages, plus an online-only performance workshop for ages 13 and up. All camps will follow the county’s latest guidelines to ensure the safety of campers and staff.
“We have a staff of caring and experienced Teaching Artists dedicated to making sure campers will enjoy playing, learning, and performing with their peers in a safe environment,” said Beth Fouts, Marin Shakespeare Company’s Education Director. “We’re excited to welcome our campers to in-person Shakespeare fun while ensuring their families can feel confident about health and safety protocols.”
In-person camps will include physical games and activities for every age group, as well as a final video performance of an abbreviated Shakespeare play. Sessions are three weeks long and held in San Rafael. The online-only performance camp will explore Richard III and be led by Aidan O’Reilly, an exceptional actor and director who played Richard III at Marin Shakespeare Company in 2015.
