Summer in Melbourne
Students aged 8 – 16 can enjoy a fun filled summer school holiday learning and socialising. The Australian Shakespeare Company actors, directors and educators offer drama workshops based on Shakespeare’s classic: A Midsummer Night’s Dream, giving young people the opportunity to build their own unique stepping stones to self-confidence.
Students aged 16 and over can take part in a number of workshops we will be running. Information regarding these workshops will be released below.

A fun week full of games and play for all 7 – 12 year olds and 13 – 16 year olds, whether they are fans of the bard or have never even heard of him. Your children will have so much fun they won’t even realise they are expanding their vocabulary, developing their self confidence and most importantly learning about life. Participants will also take part in a number of drama games, clowning, commedia dell’arte and improvisation. The week will culminate in a live performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream for family and friends.

I just love the language. I also love learning about the plays and having to learn lines. The tutors just make it so fun!”
Darcy – Aged 11
The plays are so different. Some are a bit the same, but each one is so unique. I love that the language is so different to now days. It’s so good to know why it’s important.
Daniel – Aged 10
I love the big range Shakespeare has! Comedies! Tragedies! These classes keep life in the plays and makes Shakespeare really fun!”
