Shakespeare outdoors
Innovation Theatre Works has partnered with GoodLife Brewing Company in Bend to present a free outdoor play, Shakespeare’s “The Tempest,” in the brewery’s beer garden, Aug. 10-12.

Play times are Aug. 10 and 11 at 7:30 p.m. and Aug. 12 at 2 p.m.
Tickets will be available beginning June 1 at Innovation Theatre Works and Goodlife Brewing, both located in Bend. There is a limit of four tickets per person for this event.

Theater camp for teens
Innovation Theatre Works has announced a new partnership with Patricia West-Del Ruth, M.A. this August to conduct an intensive playwriting/screenwriting camp for teenagers.
The camp will utilize an experimental process aimed at enabling students to learn an extraordinary amount of information in a very short period of time. No prior experience in writing is required. Starting with a focus on the study of dramatic structure, the students will learn the importance of transforming ideas to story format  and how to discuss, write and perform their own written words.
The camp will culminate in each student’s final project – a draft, outline or treatment for a play, film short or feature film. Additionally, the students will pitch their projects on camera for a professional and peer-to-peer review.
The cost for the summer playwriting/screenwriting camp is $199. The camp will take place at Innovation Theatre Works on Fridays and Saturdays over two weeks, beginning Friday, Aug. 10 and finishing Saturday, Aug. 18. Class hours will be 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and include a half hour lunch break. Lunch will be provided.
Patricia West-Del Ruth, M.A. is a member of the High Desert Writers Guild and won a Living Legacy Award for her contributions to Cinema Arts Education. She is a member of the Screen Actors Guild and has four Telly Awards for producing and directing her own shows under the banner of Creative Heart Productions. She is also a consultant to actors, writers and independent filmmakers.
For more information and to register for the summer camp, call 541-504-6721 or email brad@innovationtw.org.
