Verdugo Woodlands Elementary's After-School Drama Program
Making Shakespeare easy, accessible, and fun!
WHAT PARENTS ARE SAYING...
Spotlights is the best! Mr. Josh and Mr. Jason are great teachers and such positive mentors for all the students. They make sure all the kids get a part and everyone feels special. We are HUGE fans!
I highly recommend this program to any who are considering it. The teachers go to great lengths to ensure that all of the students play a significant part and have a great time. My son's only regret is that the play is now over.
This is an amazing after-school program. It's truly something special, and so wonderful for all the kids. I can't say enough good things!
The rundown hotel on the far side of Hollywood has seen better days.
Once a haven for movies stars and royalty alike, the Hotel Shakespeare is on the
verge of shutting her doors for good. But tonight finds the hotel busting at the seams, as one bellhop is left alone to somehow manage a surprise surge of guests.
Running from room to room, can the bellhop meet all the needs of these peculiar guests, or will the whole building collapse from all the night's craziness?
We've traded the Stage for the Camera!
Inviting all Verdugo Woodlands students, grades 4th-6th,
to an online adventure! Join us as we socially distance, and collectively create the blockbuster FILM "Hotel Shakespeare"!
Check out what our summer camp families said about us!
"Everything is so well organized and well-conceived. The entire staff is so professional and kind to both students and parents. My daughter is having a blast and I’m so grateful you all play a role in both nurturing her confidence and also inspiring her to dream and create. You all are simply impeccable, which is not easy to pull off in an online medium! And although unconventional we are grateful that this is online. What a fun and special experience for them all to connect with other kids." -Veronica V.
"The time my son spent at camp was the happiest he has been since these stay at home orders began. Thank you for such a special experience." -Leigh R.
"Thank you for an incredible theatre camp experience! She loved every moment of her time over the last 3 weeks. She was engaged, and our dinner table conversations were all the excitement from her day at camp. We got to do some improv games too!
You all deserve a standing ovation for how hard you've worked to make this an enjoyable experience especially in the wake of a pandemic and remote learning. Kudos to each and every one of you!" -Kristina H.
"I have to admit, I've had a blast with the acting and filming. It's a great way to have a special bonding session with her. I have observed that she has come out of her shell during the past 3 weeks. I know COVID is tough for all of us and for the kiddos its hard to explain to them why their worlds have changed so much. This camp has given her a chance to feel excited about the day and gives her day a real purpose. It was also special to hear her say 'my friend Paige' or 'my friend Grace'. The fact that friendships can be formed over Zoom sessions is remarkable." -Erin O.
"Great Camp!!! Our son, Cameron, is really enjoying it! Thank you for all of your hard and creative work making it come alive virtually!!" -Juliette G. H.
