Summer camps registering now

Shakespeare in Action and UrbanArts will be running summer camps.

UrbanArts’ camp is called SummerArts, and the info is below:


SIA will have “two different camps in July as well as an additional August session for ages 10-14 that will take place at Assembly Hall (located in South Etobicoke).”

The first is our Groundlings Camp for ages 7-10. This year the Groundlings will be taking on Romeo & Juliet. As in previous years, we will be guiding them through the process of building a whole play from scratch, including costumes, props and sets. Of course, the Groundlings will be working with professional actors the entire time to develop their performances.

In our Nobles Camp (ages 11-14), we will be tackling the classic tale of Julius Caesar. Participants will get an opportunity to be challenged by SIA’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s iconic drama! From prop, set and costume design to scene and movement work  campers will take a hands-on approach – all culminating in a fun and exciting performance for family and friends at Artscape Weston Common in North West Toronto.  

We are also excited to have added on a THIRD session of camp magic this summer for Campers aged 10-14! This will run August 2nd-12th at Assembly Hall in South Etobicoke. In this fun and collaborative drama camp your child will be immersed in the exciting world of theatre making. This session of campers will explore and perform our very own adaptation of Shakespeare’s great romantic drama, Romeo and Juliet!

All our programs will be done outdoors, with indoor spaces remaining a backup in case of inclement weather. Further policies for COVID-19, including our refund policy, can be found on our Eventbrite page: https://www.eventbrite.ca/cc/summer-camps-2022-286989
