THEATRE CAMPS

 

Our camps, true to THEATREWORKS nature, are small, smart, and will make your kids think (and do!).

 

With a maximum of 20 students, your child will be immersed in hands-on, experiential learning through programs connected to our rich history of performing Shakespeare and classic melodrama.

 

SPRING BREAK 2017: Comic Book Capers for campers 8 - 13 years old who love graphic novels and comics. Their imaginations will be put to the test as they create new super heros - in ink and in real life!

 

March 27 - 31
$275 (discounts available for siblings)

ROCKY MOUNTAIN ROOTS & BRANCHES
In partnership with the Kraemer Family Library

Intergenerational Storytelling: THEATREWORKS has teamed up with the Kraemer Family Library for an Intergenerational storytelling competition. Contest judges will lead workshops starting October 14th for the November 15th storytelling competition.

 

Find out more about the workshops and contest by visiting this link (goes to the Kraemer Family Library Website).

 

TALKBACKS: Throughout our season we will offer post-show discussions with intergenerational audiences guided by our Educational Theatre Coordinator. We'll discuss  how we see a piece differently through the generations and also find commonality in our experiences together.

 

INTERGENERATIONAL TEAS: We have partnered with Blue Star Theatres to present Intergenerational Teas. Bring your whole family to the Dusty Loo  on December 18th and join us for tea and a workshop designed for everyone to creatively play together and immerse yourselves in the world of our production of A Christmas Carol. This event is free with the purchase of tickets to the 4pm matinee.

 

 

MATINEES and PRE-SHOW WORKSHOPS

 

There is nothing more valuable than actually seeing great work, so several times throughout the year we offer student matinees designed for classes to take a field trip during the day to the Dusty Loo Bon Vivant Theater.

Additionally, to create a stronger relationship for students with the work we recommend booking a pre-show workshop. These workshops give students tools and access into the history and style of the play.

 

Tickets are $8 each and must be booked in advance.

SHAKESPEARE IN THE SCHOOLS

 

This hands-on program lets students get Shakespeare on his feet in the classroom and provides fantastic new tools for K-12 educators. Shakespeare in the Schools:

  • Makes Shakespeare more accessible by helping students to empathize with characters and discover physicality and movement.
  • Gives students a sense of empowerment  by encouraging self direction.
  • Creates a space for critical thinking and reasoning through problem-solving and collaboration.

The foundation of SHAKESPEARE IN THE SCHOOLS reflects the Colorado Academic Standards and includes a heavy emphasis on 21st century skills for 5th - 10th grade students in Southern Colorado.

Residencies, ranging from 1 - 5 days, are available January - March, 2017 (price varies based on duration). Plays for 2017 are Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night's Dream and Julius Caesar, and The Tempest.
