TT Much Ado 2

“TPE takes all that teenaged energy and angst and produces something wonderful.” – Audience Member, 2006


Camp Features:

Experience a professional-level tour while still in high school!  Combining advanced training in Shakespeare with a rigorous performance tour, the Traveling Troupe offers challenges unlike any other teen theatre program.  Artistic Director Jeanne Harrison draws on her 25 years as a director and teacher to bring out the best in every performer, and to bring them together into a powerful, supportive ensemble.

The Traveling Troupe rehearses a full-length Shakespeare play and then takes it on tour by purple bus, camping and performing in beautiful outdoor theaters throughout Virginia.  Along the way, we’ll go camping, hiking, white-water rafting, and exploring in Colonial Williamsburg.

Shakespeare’s Comedy of Errors

In Shakespeare’s gleefully ridiculous Comedy of Errors, two pairs of identical twins dodge mistaken identities, irate wives, sinister moneylenders, dangerous Dukes, mysterious nuns, and the forces of the law in a ludicrous four-way identity crisis.

The Performance Tour

After five weeks of rehearsals, you’ll pack up your bus and hit the road for a full two-week tour through Virginia, performing at Colonial Williamsburg, the Lime Kiln Amphitheater, and other beautiful outdoor sites.  Along the way, you’ll go camping, hiking, white-water rafting, and exploring in Colonial Williamsburg.  All this before returning for a final performance festival for family and friends!
