It is fitting on today, April 23, the day when we recognize the birthday of William Shakespeare, that we launch this blog. It is also fitting on today that we announce: Registration is now open for Little Revolt’s teen summer Shakespeare Camp!
First, about the blog. We have called our new blog ‘Furry Revolution’ because: a.) It’s cute, and b.) It reinforces the idea started with Little Revolt that we can — in our own small (cuddly) way – help make the world a better place by creating theater and art. I will spare you any pronouncements about what this blog will be. We will see. But I expect there will be news and updates about Little Revolt, along with ruminations about the trials and terrors of running a small nonprofit theater organization, as well as thoughts about the arts world in general. We invite you to check back occasionally, sign-up for email updates, or follow us on social media to stay in touch with us. Now, on to Shakespeare Camp.
Little Revolt’s Summer Shakespeare Camp for teens (ages 13-17) is scheduled for July 27 through August 11. It will be held at the beautiful and historic Curtiss Mansion in Miami Springs, Florida. Shakes Camp will be a twelve-day fun and immersive experience. Planned activities include: learning Shakespeare original staging practices, costuming, talk-back sessions with adult actors, acting exercises, improvisation, movement, safe stage combat, Elizabethan era dance lessons, and more. Camp will culminate in a final student performance on the evening of August 11. Shakespeare Camp promises to be an intense, fun, busy, creative, and joyful 12 days. Our aim is to create memories which will last a lifetime. So if you’re a teen, or know someone who is a teen, register now for Little Revolt’s Shakespeare Camp.
That’s it for our first blog post. Oh, and happy birthday, Shakespeare!
