We currently offer after-school programs, book-in visits, and assemblies at your school site in theater-related disciplines.
Cal Shakes comes to you! Many of our arts education programs are available to take place on your campus, at your convenience. Our after-school classes are available as eight-to-12-week sessions focusing on acting, clowning, stage combat, and even Shakespeare for the very young. All classes are customizable to your class size, age range, time frame, and subject needs. We bring the classes to you.
Storybook Theater (grades K–2)
Be nimble; be quick! Every week in Storybook Theater, students explore and experience a new story from around the world, building skills in working together and self-expression.
Clowning (grades 1–5)
Serious fun for all elementary ages: Costumes, props, scarves, red noses, are feathers are just some of the tools that go into creating a delightful show full of scenes and stories the children create together.
Shakespeare for Kids (grades 3–5)
You wouldn’t believe how much ridiculous fun is in Shakespeare’s characters and stories. We investigate Elizabethan insults and compliments, jump into the buffoonery of the comedies and exaggeration of the tragedies, and learn to create a real (fake) Shakespearean fight.
Stage Combat (grades 3–5)
Thou art a toad-spotted traitor! Learn to answer such Shakespearean insults with easy and convincing stage combat moves using stick swords. Stage combat is the art of learning to work with a partner in precise and exciting movement to create the illusion of a fight—while keeping both partners perfectly safe.
