Eight adolescent actors learned acting techniques and performed William Shakespeare’s “As You Like It” during a 10-day window in July.
Oberlin College student Annie Rasiel led the group of volunteers in team-building activities and proper breathing and voice techniques during a Shakespeare-themed camp at First Church.
The group also learned improv and safe fight scene moves before demonstrating all they learned in front of their friends and family, and even danced the salsa.
The campers also toured the college’s Hall Audtitorium and met with a member of the Actors’ Equity Association, Matthew Wright.
Rasiel is a child product of the Stella Adler Studio of Acting in New York City, first performing as a fourth grader in Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night.”
For the fourth year, she will volunteer in 2014-2015 at Langston Middle School where she will work with young teens.
