Shakespeare Superheroes: Homeschool Edition

Shakespeare Superheroes (Ages 7-15)

Shakespeare Superheroes is designed to introduce kids to the language, stories, characters and ideas in Shakespeare’s plays in imaginative and playful ways. Kids are introduced to theatre, imagination skills, public speaking, creative play and the literature that they will study in three of four years of high school. Camp activities specifically geared for youngsters incorporating voice, movement, and acting enable students to explore Shakespeare’s text emotionally, physically, and intellectually. Daily recess, a pizza party, and arts and crafts activities are all part of Superheroes camp for a well-rounded experience.

Frequently Asked Questions


1. What is a Playshop in Performance?

Playshop in Performance (PIP for short) is the name for our most popular interactive workshop. PIPs provide students with a chance to mount their very own mini-production of a single Shakespeare play- in under an hour! Members of our professional acting company lead small groups to interpret and explore classic Shakespeare scenes and language, encouraging student- generated ideas and collaboration.

2. What time does a Shakesploration Day start? How long does it last?

Shakesploration Days begin with a Playshop in Performance at 9:00 AM, followed by an hour- long touring production performance at 11:00 AM. Guided tours of the theatre begin at 12:00 PM. Shakesploration Days end by 12:30 PM.

3. How early can our group arrive?

The front doors are unlocked for admittance to our lobby and theatre 30 minutes before the first scheduled event.

4. Where can we park?

We recommend parking across the street at Emory Midtown Hospital.

5. Are there refreshments and souvenirs available?

Snacks and souvenirs are available for purchase in between the workshop and performance.

6. My children are different ages, will they be able to stay together during the activities?

For the benefit of everyone involved, all students ages 4-6 will participate in a workshop specially designed for a younger age group called Shakespeare Says! They will only spend about a half hour in a different space from the older students before all students come together to perform for one another!


7. Do parents and chaperones have to participate in the workshop?

Parents and chaperones do not have to participate in the workshops. We do ask, however, that you stay in the room while the interactive workshops and performances are in progress. All parents and chaperones will need to purchase a ticket for the performance portion of the day.
