Want to learn how to "speak the speech... trippingly on the tongue?" The Tennessee Shakespeare Company can help. Details below the fold.

TSC invites students entering grades 5 through 8 and students entering
grades 9 through 12 to play outdoors and indoors with two unique series
of Summer Play Camps at The Hutchison School in Memphis:

The Play's the Thing

June 21-25, 2010

Monday-Friday from 9:00 am - 4:00 pm.
Daily lunch is provided and included in the tuition.

Session 1: Grades 5-8

Session 2: Grades 9-12

Cost: $250.00 per student.

Leap into the world of Shakespeare's Macbeth with Tennessee Shakespeare Company's professional
actor-teachers. You'll be on your feet during this week-long
exploration, living the world of the play. You'll be among the witches
greeting Macbeth on the heath, then you'll be telling the very first
"Knock, Knock" joke, and finally you'll do battle in the moving woods of
Dunsinane! You won't believe how much fun you'll be having in this
performance-based camp. No Shakespeare or theatre experience is
necessary. Just come ready to play.

Young Players Training Institute

July 12-23, 2010

Monday-Friday from 9:00 am - 4:00 pm.
Daily lunch is provided and included in the tuition.

Session 1: Grades 5-8

Session 2: Grades 9-12

Cost: $500.00 per student.

Would you like to train and rehearse like the classical actors of
Tennessee Shakespeare Company? Here is your opportunity. The YPTI is a
fun, intense, and demanding two weeks in which you will build upon
essential acting techniques while taking personal ownership of
Shakespeare's text. You will build your craft through sessions in
Elizabethan Dance, Movement, Stage Combat, Text Work, Soliloquy, and
Scene Play. The Institute is performance-based and will culminate in a
final scene-sharing for your friends and family.

To register, or to register your child, please call Amanda Killen at The
Hutchison School at (901) 507-2460 or akillen@hutchisonschool.org.
