Banned Books


with Hunter Brown

Calendar Jul 10, 2023 at 9 am, runs for 2 weeks

Grades 7-12

What do the novels I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, Speak, The Catcher in the Rye, Fahrenheit 451 and The Handmaid’s Tale all have in common? These books have all been placed on the Banned Books list. There are many reasons why a book might be banned but there are even MORE reasons to share a censored story. Students will learn about some of the classics in literature and will collaborate as an ensemble to create their own script from those stories. During this fast-paced, two-week acting conservatory, students will learn to finesse skills in scene work, character development and devising.


Please note: this conservatory is held outside of our usual classroom area in the Casa del Prado. The conservatory will meet every day at the San Diego City College Blackbox Theatre. Please direct any questions to Camp Director Hannah Corder, or Education Director Elissa Russell.

Will run
