AMHERST - Shakespeare will be the name of the game this summer for local youth going to theatre camp.
Tantramar Theatre's Summer Theatre School will host A Mid Summer Night's Dream from July 4 to 15.
"I've heard about Shakespeare before, but I've never performed in a play of his," said Jack Lefler, 11, one of the program's participants.
"I've read some of his stuff but have never done one of his plays. I'm excited," added 12-year-old Molly Kate Somers.
Steve Bradford, instructor of the summer program, said he's excited to be bringing Shakespeare to the school.
"This is the first time we've done Shakespeare in a few years. We've usually been doing musicals so it's always good to try something different," Bradford said.
