Who:  Teenagers, 13-18, with an interest in theatre. You may have years of stage experience or none at all to participate in our program. All are welcome.

What:  Four weeks of Shakespeare, with discussion on life in London during the plague, thematic elements of Shakespeare that apply to today. At the end of our four weeks, we will perform The Tempest as a radio play.

Where:  Online, using a password-protected Zoom meeting.

When:  M-F, July 6—July 31, 11am-12pm on most days

Why:  Part of the beauty of Shakespeare is that it is fluid, adaptable to situations that Shakespeare never knew possible. The plays contain universal themes and the potential to reach hearts.

How:  Sign up by June 30, 2020 (Below).

In accordance with the principles of Unitarian Universalism, we assert that:

As a member of the Principle Players, I promise to do my best to attend auditions and all rehearsals, including tech week, and to give my best for our performance. I will try to give advance notice for days I am not available. I promise to adhere to the principles (listed on above).

As a parent/guardian of a Principle Player, I give my child permission to participate in the UCWC Summer Shakespeare program. This permission includes the right to record my child in the final performance and post the recording on UCWC’s YouTube channel. I hereby give my permission for photos of RE activities that include my child, named above, to be posted to the UCWC website and/or appear in Connections, the weekly congregational email update.

In a welcoming, accepting, and fun environment, children from Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade are invited:

  • to explore what it means to be Unitarian Universalist
  • to learn about our Judeo-Christian roots
  • to gain first-hand knowledge of other faiths
  • to engage in worship and activities with members of all ages
  • to make a difference in the local community and the world through hands-on social action projects

Younger children also enjoy:

  • skits and crafts
  • occasional “Group RE” days, with special activities in a one-room-schoolhouse environment

Older children may join the Youth Group beginning in 9th grade. Currently, Youth Group meets the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month, at the same time as our Children’s Religious Education program for younger children (9:15 – 10:30 am).

Overall, we are guided by the seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism, which describe how we covenant to live with each other and in the world.

Young people have always been an important, cherished part of our congregation and we have provided religious education classes since our founding in 1954.
