Cincinnati Shakespeare Company is committed to inviting young voices to join the conversation about Shakespeare, the classics, and drama.  We reach nearly 30,000 students every year with our education and outreach programs.  We bring Shakespeare into classrooms and community centers with engaging and exciting performances and workshops.   We do this by offering programs for schools and community centers in their school, offering programs at the theater as well as offering acting classes and camps for adults and teens.

Please note:  2014 Summer Camps are now full. 
Shakespeare Summer Camp is a one-week theater day camp for middle school and high school students who want to learn more about the art of theatre. Campers work with members of the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company Resident Ensemble (including Actor’s Equity members), learning acting, stage combat, movement, and text analysis for the actor. This exciting camp has grown into a three-tiered program for students of all levels of experience. Hosted by Xavier University in the Gallagher Student Center, Shakespeare Summer Camp is an adventure you don’t want to miss! Learn More
