Physical theatre, comedy, acting, clowning, and all the rest will give your child unique insight into Shakespeare's (and other classic playwright's) greatest hits. Several camps include opportunities for campers to perform at Rock Ledge Ranch "on the green," before performances of THEATREWORKS Shakespeare Festival.
This year we have camps for children ages 8-13 with a variety of programs to help them explore their theatrical side, including:
This hands-on program lets students get Shakespeare on his feet in the classroom and provides fantastic new tools for K-12 educators. Shakespeare in the Schools:
The foundations of this program reflect the Colorado Academic Standards and include a heavy emphasis on 21st century skills for 5th–10th grade students in Southern Colorado.
Residencies, ranging from 1–5 days, are available January–March, 2017 (price varies based on duration). Plays for 2017 are Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Julius Caesar, and The Tempest.
Our camps, true to THEATREWORKS' nature, are small, smart, and will make your kids think (and do)!
With a maximum of 20 students, your child will be immersed in hands-on, experiential learning through programs connected to our rich history of performing Shakespeare and classic melodrama.
We have a variety of camps for children ages 8-13 all summer long!
Camps are available from July 10 through August 11.

There is nothing more valuable than actually seeing great work, so several times throughout the year we offer daytime student matinees, designed to allow classes to take a field trip to the Dusty Loo Bon Vivant Theater.
To create a stronger relationship with the work, we recommend booking a pre-show workshop. These workshops give students tools to access the history and style of the play.
Tickets are $8 each and student matinees must be booked in advance.
Our intergenerational programs are a partnership with the Kraemer Family Library
Intergenerational Storytelling: THEATREWORKS has teamed up with the Kraemer Family Library for an Intergenerational storytelling competition. Contest judges will lead workshops starting October 14th for the November 15th storytelling competition.
Find out more about the workshops and contest by visiting the Kraemer Family Library website.
Throughout our season we will offer post-show discussions with intergenerational audiences guided by our Education Director. We'll discuss how we see a piece differently through the generations and also find commonality in our experiences together.
Intergenerational Teas: We have partnered with Blue Star Theatres to present Intergenerational Teas. Bring your whole family to the Dusty Loo on December 18th and join us for tea and a workshop designed for everyone to creatively play together and immerse yourselves in the world of our production of A Christmas Carol. This event is free with the purchase of tickets to the 4pm matinee.
THEATREWORKS is where actors, audiences, scholars, directors and designers come together to think about and create classic and contemporary theatre.
