We recommend that everyone stay a Thespian for as long as possible. But even here you get to make a choice:

  • Are you new to theatre? Nervous about the prospect of auditioning? Just want to get to know Traveling Players? Join the Jesters! Get juicier roles, be a leader of your ensemble, get individual direction, and really hone your skills.
  • Are you ready to take on a bigger challenge? Do you want to work at a faster pace? Audition for the Bards! This by-audition-only program will let you work on your verse skills, be a leader of your ensemble, and get individual direction.

The Shakespeare Ensemble is the best place if you already know that you love Shakespeare and camping! Take the show on a longer tour, work with juicy Shakespearian language, and experience a whole new challenge.

Calling all aspiring technicians! Love being behind the scenes? Build, sew, paint, and go on tour with the Shakespeare Ensemble or the Shakespeare Troupe.

“The Choice Year Special” – Get the best of both worlds: be a leader in the first session as a Thespian and then move on to the joys and challenges of Shakespeare in the second session.  A very popular choice for a very well-rounded summer!
