Four Corners – Camp Will
Camp Will, a Shakespearean acting camp for fifth to ninth grade students being held at Millersville University, will present its abridged performance of “The Tragedy of Julius Caesar” as part of Millersville’s Four Corners Summer Arts Festival on Friday, June 29 at 3:30 p.m. at Rafters Theatre in Dutcher Hall.
This is Camp Will’s fifth summer of operation under the direction of Laura Korach Howell, the founder and executive director of The People’s Shakespeare Project, a nonprofit organization committed to studying the work of Shakespeare through performance and performance-based instruction.
Howell has taught and directed children for more than 25 years. Much of her Shakespearean training, both stage and teaching, is from Shakespeare and Company in Lenox, Mass. This year, Howell will be joined by two Millersville University alumni to help with Camp Will. Jeff Wolfthal ’11 will serve as the assistant teacher and Alyssa Rader ’12 as a volunteer teacher for the camp.
Camp Will is a three-week day-camp that gives students the opportunity to explore the work of Shakespeare including acting, movement, voice, improvisation and text classes in the morning and set construction and rehearsals in the afternoon.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information, visit Four Corners Summer Arts Festival website. For more information about the performance, visit The People’s Shakespeare Project website.
