Elm Shakespeare invites children ages 7-12 to jump into Shakespeare's magical world at the Elm Shakespeare Players Camp. Space is limited so register today!

Where: Southern Connecticut State University - Lyman Center for Performing Arts, 501 Crescent Avenue, New Haven, CT
When: Sessions run in June, July and August
Tuition: $540 Pay online or mail checks to PO Box 206029 New Haven, CT 06520

Students spend two weeks immersed in an imaginative, supportive, and fun environment taking interactive classes in acting, clowning, stage combat, voice, movement, and theatrical design – all while rehearsing a 30-minute version of one of Shakespeare's plays.

Campers become their own Renaissance Theatre Troupe, creating costumes, props, and backdrops to create a kid-driven final performance for friends and family on the last day of camp.
