If you’re a teenager and you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to be king or sing or dance the tango, then the Winters Shakespeare Workshop is the outlet for you.

Teens ages 13 to 19 may sign up now for the workshop — five weeks of performing fun, ending in a production of “Much Ado About Nothing.” The show this summer will be set in Argentina in the 1920s.

Winters Shakespeare Workshop is a summer acting camp in its 17th season. Actors work with professional director Russell St. Clair to develop a range of performing skills, including stage combat, physical comedy, singing and dancing, special effects and more.

This year, actors will perform a complete production of “Much Ado About Nothing” on the stage in Winters’ City Park. Musical director Eric Linvill will arrange, compose and direct the live orchestra. Acting, dancing and combat coaches from Winters and UC Davis will complete the workshop training team.

The workshop offers teens an intensive blast of training in all aspects of theatrical production. Five evenings a week for five weeks, actors hone their performing skills working with coaches, the director, musicians and each other. Some choose to work on sets, props or costumes in their afternoons; others participate in community outreach to younger children in the Winters community.

Sign-ups will be taken through June 10. Individuals will read for parts at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 18, in the Winters Library, 708 Railroad Ave. Rehearsals will run from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays, June 15 to July 17. Performances are slated for 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, July 18-19.

The fee is $250, and scholarships are available. Pick up an enrollment form at the Winters Library, or download one on Facebook or from wfol.org or call 530-795-3476.
