Gannon University's ShakeXperience Theatre Camp Takes the Stage
Posted: July 19, 2013
"If music be the food of love, play on, give me excess of it,
that, surfeiting..." The music, history and movement of William
Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night" are among the list of theatrical
workshops offered at Gannon University's ShakeXperience summer
ShakeXperience is a week long camp for high school students
interested in all aspects of theater and the works of Shakespeare.
Hosted by the University's Department of Theatre, Communications
and Fine Arts, participants will receive a first-hand experience of
a Gannon education.
Students will stay in a Gannon residence hall July 22 through
27, dine at the campus cafeteria and explore the excitement of
summer in downtown Erie.
Faculty, staff and expert guest instructors will teach workshops
from 9 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. at the Schuster Theatre. Instructors
will use a "teach by doing" philosophy during workshops in
performance, text analysis, movement, music, history and
improvisation. Students will also rehearse Shakespearean scenes and
monologues throughout the week to perform at the end of the camp in
the ShakeXperience Showcase.
