Join us! Every summer, we welcome students of all ages to the beautiful Shenandoah Valley to participate in one of the American Shakespeare Center's theatre camps. Campers study and play at the Blackfriars Playhouse to deepen their experience of theatre and Shakespeare.
Heading into it's 20th year, the American Shakespeare Center Theatre Camp (ASCTC) is an invigorating and inspiring residential summer program for students aged 13-19. ASCTC is hosted over two three-week sessions by the American Shakespeare Center's Blackfriars Playhouse in partnership with Mary Baldwin University.
Session 1: June 18 - July 9
Session 2: July 16 - August 6
REGISTRATIONS ARE OPEN! CLICK HERE TO APPLY.
