The Syracuse Shakespeare Festival is now accepting applications for its 2020 theatre program for students in 5th through 12th grades, KIDS, (Kids Doing Shakespeare).  Set for July 13th through 17th, 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. the John Ben Snow Foundation and B&C Storage.  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 2020 Shakespeare-In-The-Park main stage show, Much Ado About Nothing, Aug. 7th-16th, 2020 in Thornden Park's beautiful Amphitheatre.


All participants must bring their own lunch (except our last day lunch from Brooklyn Pickle) and provide their own transportation. Snacks will be provided each day and all students get a prize on show day.  Students are asked to register as soon as possible.  Don’t be disappointed!
