Quotes from our Education Department

“Young adults can sharpen their skills for a career in the arts at our summer camps,” said Betsy Anne Huggins, ASF’s Director of Education and Community Engagement.

“Summer camps combat the summer slump by keeping students active and engaged in artistic practice.”

“Theatre education plays a vital role in the lives of young people not just to encourage the next generation of artists, but because it fosters more collaborative, confident, and curious youth,” said Delaney Burlingame, ASF’s Education Coordinator.

“This summer, ASF is offering opportunities for students of all ages to experience the magic of drama. Camp Shakespeare introduces students to the poetry of William Shakespeare as we explore all facets of theatre from voice and movement to props and costumes. Broadway South guides students through the world of musical theatre as they build skills in singing, acting, and dance. All camps culminate in a celebratory performance for friends and family on one of ASF’s main stages. Whether this is your first time on stage or you were dancing before you could walk, camp at ASF is for everyone.” Learn more at ASF.net/camp.
