Star Wars Meets Shakespeare 2018
Come join us “A long , long time ago. In a Galaxy far, far away. Star Wars: Verily a New Hope.” This fantastic retelling of Star Wars uses Shakespeare’s famous writing style.The Saga of Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi, the evil Sith Lord Darth Vader, a beautiful Princess Leia held captive, as well as a young farmer Luke Skywalker, who will one day become a hero and save the galaxy. Shakespeare and Star Wars abound with all the adventure, valor, villainy and spectacle of The Bard’s greatest plays.
This fabulous camp concluded with a free performance of this familiar tale. The youth and teen camps joined together to share their show on the final camp day, June 29. The show played to a packed house of thrilled families, friends and theater fans.
Ohio Valley Summer Theater’s Youth Camp is our keystone youth engagement activity. This ten-year-old Youth Camp engages approximately 45 elementary, middle and high school students each summer.
Youth Camp is a three-week immersive, educational theater experience divided into two camps: 1) morning camp for rising 2nd-6th grade students, and 2) afternoon camp for rising 7th-12th grade students. Each camp culminates in a free, public performance by campers, crew, lighting, and sound technicians.
Youth Camp participants are drawn from all area schools, the local homeschool community, out-of-town visitors, and exchange students. No previous experience is necessary to attend Youth Camp and repeat participants often advance into assistant and mentorship roles with younger and first-time campers.
A unique offering at OVST’s Youth Camp is the availability of a technical theater track for students interested in all that encompasses what goes into making a staged production.
