Willful Youth: Shakespeare's Ghosts and Villains is for ages 13-17, with classes at 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 16-20. Campers speak the words of Shakespeare's ghosts and villains while creating their own fake scars, bruises and blood. Professional actors from "Romeo and Juliet" will lead the action. Cost for the session is $275.
