The Syracuse Shakespeare Festival is now accepting applications for its 2019 theatre program for students in 5th through 12th grades, KIDS, (Kids Doing Shakespeare). Set for July 8th through 12th, 10 am to 3 pm, rookies and returning students will be taught together in Thornden Park’s Carriage House in cooperation with the Syracuse Parks, Recreation and Youth Programs Dept. and the John Ben Snow Foundation. This exciting programming mix of speaking skills, stage techniques, costume design, set painting, Renaissance music & dance and English country dancing usually sells out quickly so don't delay. All students will perform some part of the chosen scene as a culminating activity on the last Friday of our intensive (but fun) theatre week. The scene will be selected from our 2018 Shakespeare-In-The-Park main stage show, The Tempest, Aug. 2nd-11th, 2019 in Thornden Park's beautiful Amphitheatre.
