ORLANDO, Fla. - Feb. 16, 2015 - PRLog -- Orlando Shakespeare Theater in Partnership with UCF unveils its Creative Arts Camps for Summer 2015. With a selection of sixteen different camps running from June 8 - August 7, 2015, the Theater offers something for every age and level of experience. Each camp is taught by theater professionals, and designed to ignite the imagination, inspire creativity, and teach life skills. Space can be reserved by calling the Box Office at (407) 447-1700 ext. 1, online at www.orlandoshakes.org, or in person at the John and Rita Lowndes Shakespeare Center (812 E. Rollins St.).

Orlando Shakes’ week-long summer camps offer short term solutions for the busy family. Little ones will dance along with their favorite storybook friends in Elephants Cannot Dance!: An Elephant and Piggie Camp and use imaginative play to create a new world every day in Let’s Throw a Party!. Grade level students will explore how art and science converge in Monday With A Mad Genius: A Magic Tree House Camp and create their own spooky story in Supernatural Shakespeare. Each week-long camp culminates in a final showcase in front of family and friends. Tuition for week-long camps starts at $190.

“Every child is different, so their summer camp options should be too. From wacky cartoon characters to silly puppets and back to the Bard himself, there is truly something for everyone this summer.” said Jennifer Bonner, Theater for Young Audiences Coordinator.

The Theater also offers production camps that range from one to four-week sessions, and focus on one of William Shakespeare’s well-known plays includingMacbeth, Love’s Labours Lost, and The Taming of the Shrew. Each production camp culminates in a performance for friends and family at the Lowndes Shakespeare Center. Tuition for production camps starts at $200.

Students in Grades 7 - 12 have the unique opportunity to enroll in Shakespeare With Heart, a collaboration between UCP of Central Florida, the Exceptional Education Department of UCF, and Orlando Shakespeare Theater. Students with and without special needs work together over a two-week period to produce a modernized version of one of Shakespeare’s plays. “We’re celebrating the tenth anniversary of Shakespeare With Heart by returning to the first play we ever worked on, The Tempest,” said Director of Education Anne Hering. “We’ve set the mystical fantasy under the big top at the circus!”. To register contact the Education Department at (407) 447-1700 ext. 208. Limited scholarships available.
