KIDS 2018 Needs a Few More GREAT KIDS

Syracuse Shakespeare-In-The-Park is now accepting applications for its 2018 theatre program entitled, “Kids Doing Shakespeare,” (KIDS) set for July 9-13, 2018, 10 am to 3 pm daily, for students in grades 5 thru 12.   

Our application is available in downloads.  Cost is $144 through 7/4/18.  Late registrations July 5th and 6th only (if space is available) $155!

Rookies and returning students will be taught together in Thornden Park’s Carriage House in cooperation with the Syracuse Parks, Recreation & Youth Programs Dept. and the John Ben Snow Foundation.  

This exciting programming mix of speaking skills, stage techniques, costume design, set painting, Renaissance music & dance  and English country dance usually sells out quickly so don’t delay.  

All students will perform some part of the chosen scene, as a culminating activity for family, friends & the public, on the last Friday of our intensive (but fun) theatre week. 

The scene will be selected from our 2018 main stage SSITP production of The Merry Wives of Windsor, Aug. 3-12th, in Thornden Park's beautiful Amphitheatre.

Share the BIG news

Julius Caesar attracted an audience of 410+ people on Sunday, 6/10/18, the second largest one day audience for our June SSITP show topped only by the 425 people who came to see Henry IV, Part 1 in June 2012

Today's Shakespeare Fact

Merry Wives of Windsor is Shakespeare's only play set entirely within the Bard's native England.  It has been said that Queen Elizabeth "commissioned" Shakespeare to write a play containing the Falstaff character in love.

Mission of Syracuse Shakespeare-in-the-Park

The mission of the Syracuse Shakespeare Festival Corp., now doing business as Syracuse Shakespeare-In-The-Park, is to bring the beauty, poetry and language of Shakespeare to everyone in Central New York especially school-aged children. We also strive to attract visitors from outside the region to supplement and support the health of the CNY economy.  

We will achieve these goals by presenting high quality productions of Shakespeare plays in period costumes for our two outdoor shows in the Thornden Park Amphitheater in June and August each year. The public is invited to attend the shows for free and encouraged to make donations to ensure the high quality of future productions.  

We will achieve these goals by reaching out to CNY school-aged students through classes, workshops, in-school performances and field trips to Thornden Park based on current curricular needs. We will collaborate with as many community groups and funders as possible to widen and strengthen our productions.
