Another Shakespeare Notice

PICT Classic Theatre is hosting three summer camp programs for children in underserved communities of Pittsburgh this summer. 

The camps will focus on the works of William Shakespeare, offering children the opportunity to learn about Shakespeare in a 
comfortable, fun, and supportive environment. The first camp was held at the Homewood-Brushton YMCA from June 26th to 29th. 

The second and third camps are scheduled for July and August at the Sarah Heinz House on the North Side (July 31-August 4) 
and at the Thelma Lovette YMCA on Centre Avenue in the Hill District (August 14-18).

Each camp has two teaching artists and serves approximately 20 students per location. Activities include learning about Shakespeare,  reading grade appropriate Shakespeare renditions, character study, scene and setting analysis, movement and voice  work with iambic pentameter, and the opportunity to perform scenes from Shakespeare’s works in front of family and friends.
