News Release:

Registration is now open for Grand Valley State University’s fourth annual Will Power summer education program for children.

These Grand Valley Shakespeare Festival day camps focus on developing creativity and expanding campers’ imaginations through the process of drama. Using the works of Shakespeare, campers will learn about theater concepts and storytelling through activities such as theater games, stage combat, and improvisation centered on the Bard’s plays.

Session 1: July 13-17
Buckingham Group (entering grades 1-3), 9 a.m.-noon
Westminster Group (entering grades 4-6), 1-4 p.m.

Session 2: July 20-24
Buckingham Group (entering grades 1-3), 9 a.m.-noon
Westminster Group (entering grades 4-6), 1-4 p.m.

“Without the pressure of a presentation or production, every camper gets a chance to build a character, create lines and have fun,” said Karen Libman, camp organizer and Grand Valley Shakespeare Festival director of community engagement. “Campers learn theater vocabulary, explore elements of storytelling, and expand their imaginations.”

Teachers from Pigeon Creek Shakespeare Company, assisted by Grand Valley theater students, will provide instruction and encouragement. All sessions will be held at the Performing Arts Center on Grand Valley’s Allendale Campus.

Registration fees are $110 per camper; $95 second child discount; $200 two-week discount. Price includes class fees and materials. Scholarship opportunities are also available.
