STEEL ON STAGE
Register Today for Our Brand-New Summer Camp!
Instructor Tonya Lynn demonstrates a variation on the aurochs (or "ox") guard
Join En Garde Fencing Club and Pittsburgh Shakespeare in the Parks as we team up to explore the art of stage combat! At Steel on Stage Summer Camp, we will learn the basic skills of modern sport fencing and then take those swords on to the stage.
The day begins with learning the basic skills of modern fencing, including footwork and bladework, that we will then translate into that day's stage combat work. After lunch, we will move into stage combat instruction. Working on Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, we will create vivid characters, master Shakespearean dialogue, and learn choreographed fights using techniques from modern fencing.
Friday afternoon, friends and families are invited to come and see "Romeo and Juliet - The Good Parts Abridged Version." (The version that leaves out all of the love and romance and tragic moaning and concentrates on the heart of the play: the really cool fight scenes!)
Dates: June 24th through 28th
Times: 9AM to 4PM
Ages: 8-16 years
Cost: $300 per student
Location: En Garde Fencing Club
352 Butler Street

Pittsburgh Shakespeare in the Parks is a non-profit theatre company offering free Shakespeare plays in city parks. In 2012, our production of The Tempest, directed by Alan Irvine, played to over 1,000 patrons over four September weekends. Now celebrating our 9th season, we will be serving up Romeo & Juliet in September 2013. Directed by longtime PSIP member Helen Meade, the production will explore the two parallel trajectories of two of the Bard's most tragic and poignant characters- while playing with time and space in a surprising way.
PSIP relies on the help of volunteers for front of house, marketing, ad sales, and fundraisers. If you'd like to be part of the PSIP team, please contact us. We will be happy to put you to work! If you are interested in getting involved with PSIP, please send us your information, and keep watch on our webpage and Facebook page.
