Out of consideration for our students and their families, our patrons, and our staff,

Rubicon Theatre is taking our summer youth camps and workshops ONLINE!

Yes, there will be Musicals! 

Yes, there will be Shakespeare!

May 22, 2020

Due to issues related to COVID-19, and out of concern for the health and well-being of our students and their families, all Summer 2020 Rubicon Theatre Company Education Programs will take place online. Although this is a change from the “hands-on” learning experiences of the past, we know you will be excited and surprised by some of the new and expanded opportunities.


For instance, in our Musical Theatre Production Workshop, we’ll offer, for the first time ever, private online voice instruction with two veterans of the Broadway stage, conducted live from their studios in the New York area! And students in all three of our performance programs - Fearless Shakespeare, Stinky Feet, and the Musical Theatre Production Workshop - will learn new techniques related to acting for the camera, recording auditions, and creating an inexpensive video studio in your home.


Also, as you will read below, we are inaugurating a new digital Inside the Artist’s Process interview series. Each Monday and Friday afternoon, Kirby Ward will speak with acclaimed industry professionals, including Tony and Olivier Award-winners, about their artistic journey and their career path; and enrolled students will participate in a post-interview Q & A.


All classes will be conducted virtually on Zoom.
