As a graduate of the Pacific Conservatory of Performing Arts, Aaron brings a unique skill set to Camp. Macbeth, Julius Caesar and an adaptation of Titus Andronicus are examples of Camp productions with excellent challenges that time and time again, our talented campers meet with great success.Comedy and Tragedy are all up for grabs during Camp, which creates an educational and remembered experience. Aaron leads Camp Shakespeare with the notion that Camp can be more than fun and laughter; it can coexist with education and acting craft. Joining us this summer will create exciting conversations of intrigue with your child about the day playing with "Abo" (an affectionate name given to Aaron by Campers) and Camp Shakespeare. This summer, come shake hands with Shakespeare.
