Junior Acting & Theater Summer Camp
July 8-July 19, 2019
One 2-week session offered
Day students, ages 7-12
Summer at Sem Junior Arts: All the World’s a Stage! is unique in many ways—not just because of its focus on Shakespeare:
- We love playing games! We’ll be playing capture the flag, dodgeball, and lots of theater games.
- We will discover many different aspects of theater: scenic/costume design, graphic novels using Shakespeare's stories, acting workshops, Elizabethan dance, and even stage combat!
- The two-week session culminates in an outdoor performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream for camp families and friends featuring all of the elements learned during camp!
Through theatre games, acting workshops, and a culminating show, campers will sharpen their performance skills while having a blast. The final show will be a treat featuring mischievous fairies, an enchanted forest, solving mysteries, and wildly mistaken identities.
This summer, stay active and learn new skills while having fun. This camp will instill self-confidence, public speaking skills, and encourage use of imagination. Each week will include literacy components and encourage learning while having fun!
Jennifer’s love of theatre started at the same age as Junior Arts campers are now! She really fell in love with the stage when she performed in Romeo and Juliet at The Rhode Island Shakespeare Theatre. She is excited to share her passion for theatre and Shakespeare with Junior Arts campers this summer.
Jennifer is a Guest Director at The University of Scranton and has taught theatre at Hackley School in New York. While living in England, she served as a guest teacher and director at Tonbridge School and St. Dunstan’s College.
Jennifer recently completed an MA in Educational Theatre from NYU Steinhardt. She also studied theatre at the British American Drama Academy and theatre directing at Drama Studio London. At London’s Hampstead Theatre, she enjoyed working with playwrights Stephen Adly Guirgis, Mike Leigh and Hanif Kureishi, amongst others.
