The Riotous Youth summer programs are designed to introduce young actors to the language, stories, characters and themes in Shakespeare’s plays, using imaginative and playful methods. Classes incorporating voice, movement, and acting enable students to explore Shakespeare’s text emotionally, physically, and intellectually. Students will then create a performance piece based on their experience of the play, which they will share with family, friends, and Company members on the final day of the session.
