American Shakespeare Center Theatre Camp
20 S. New Street, Fourth Floor
Staunton, VA

Twice every summer, The ASC Theatre Camp (ASCTC) plunges 39 high-school students into three weeks of intensive, immersive, incomparable programming in the Shakespearean Shangri-La of Staunton, Virginia – home of the American Shakespeare Center and the world’s only recreation of the Blackfriars Playhouse, Shakespeare’s indoor theatre.

At ASCTC, we transport students out of their normal lives and beyond their comfort zone. We challenge them to explore the limits of their infinite potential in a safe, stable, supportive environment, and they emerge not only with finer control over their craft and better preparation for college, but also with more confidence, more capability, and more capacity for growth and change.

ASCTC participants preview the college experience by living and working on the residential campus at Mary Baldwin University. They live in dorms, work in university classrooms and performance spaces, and eat in the dining hall. They spend their days rehearsing with professional directors, training with professional actors, and learning from professional academics: ASC actors, MBU graduate-level faculty, preeminent scholars, and (of course) each other. They spend their evenings at the Blackfriars Playhouse, spellbound by Shakespeare’s stagecraft.

Students can enroll in the college credit companion course and earn three college credits from Mary Baldwin University, transferable to other institutions. They can elect to stay for an extended week of internship experience, getting hands-on practice working with a professional theatre company. But all work and no play makes camp a dull sport – even when working feels like playing. Mornings off bring sleeping in and brunching at the local Farmer’s market. Days off bring trips to the lake, water balloon fights, dance parties, and well-earned opportunities to luxuriate in languorous laziness.

Three weeks of this chimeric, collaborative creativity culminates in the Final Performance Festival, where campers mount their final productions (for a packed house) on the Blackfriars Playhouse stage.

Thai Winchester Restaurant, located in the heart of the historic Old Town Mall, Winchester, Virginia, is a full service restaurant with patio seating and full bar.  After three years with fabulous reviews from our customers and two “People’s Choice” awards for Favorite Restaurant, we opened Thai Win II at Apple Blossom Corners.

Now, three more years later, Thai Staunton Restaurant brings authentic Thai cuisine to Staunton, Virginia, a city that has become one of the “country’s best-kept foodie secrets”.

Our diverse and flavorful menu has something for everyone, from mild to hot, vegetarian or not. One of the keys to the preparation of our wonderful food is the use of fresh herbs and spices such as lemon grass, basil, mint, galanga, cilantro and kaffir lime leaves, and high quality vegetable oil. We cook the food fresh to order, as mild or spicy as you like, with no MSG added.

Thai food is internationally famous for being healthy food. The herbs for Thai food not only provide unique flavor, but they are believed to have varying degrees of medicinal and therapeutic benefits. Low in calories but rich in taste.

Thai Staunton Restaurant is the place where friends get together to relax, where family members come to have a great meal, and where the business community of Staunton comes to wine and dine. Our friendly staff awaits the opportunity to serve you in a truly traditional atmosphere with Thai décor. Staff members take the time to talk to you about food, wines, drinks — or Thai culture and history.

We hope you enjoy our food. We’ve been working hard to bring the best of the Thai spirit to the charming city of Staunton.
