The ASC Theatre Camp (ASCTC) is more than just a summer camp: it’s an immersive, residential, theatrical experience. For three weeks, students live on campus at Mary Baldwin University, take classes with renowned scholars, train with ASC actors, rehearse with experienced directors, and collaborate with each other to mount a one hour performance of an early modern play. At the ASCTC, campers discover more about Shakespeare (and themselves) than they could ever learn in the classroom alone.


The ASC Theatre Camp allows students to leap into college life and learning with a secure safety net. ASCTC’s unique blend of scholarship and performance training uses Shakespeare’s text and technology to hone campers’ critical and creative skills. We’re not just training the next generation of Shakespearean actors and scholars – we’re training the next generation of fully engaged human beings.
