Tina Watchorn and youth leaders will take the Summer Shakespeare students (now in Grades 5 to 8) through an exploration and 'loose' presentation of Shakespeare's, A Midsummer Night's Dream. Drama camp is about 'playing' - playing theatre games, playing a part; and drama camp is about 'learning' - learning to listen, learning about yourself, but most importantly, drama camp is about having fun, and excitement when everything comes together - at show time! Register early. Space is limited. Registration fee is $50. Final performance on Saturday, July 15, 2017 at 2 pm at the Legion Hall.
