March Break Camps

With a unique format, children ages 7 – 12 will have the opportunity to explore five of Shakespeare’s most famous plays in five days! Each day campers read an abridged play, create scenes, play games, and work to build props, costumes, set pieces for that particular play. At the end of each day, campers present a short performance of their work.

Summer Camps

Shakespeare In Action in partnership with Canadian Stage is pleased to announce participants will have the opportunity to rehearse and perform on the grounds of Shakespeare in High Park thanks to the generous support of Shakespeare In High Park and Canadian Stage!

Every year Shakespeare for Kids features the Groundlings and King’s Company camps! Children from across Toronto will come together for two weeks, to design, build, and perform in an adaptation of one of Shakespeare’s plays. 

The participants will get to learn what it takes to design costumes, sets, and props for their show with a professional designer while using creative skills and ingenuity. They will also be coached by the SIA team of professional artists to create a final performance for friends and family to be presented on the grounds of Shakespeare in High Park!
