The Western Stage
Announces First Annual High School Theatre Conference
In recognition of the wealth of talent that exists in Monterey County High School Theatre programs, and the dedication of area Drama teachers to continue to create and develop opportunities for their students, The Western Stage is introducing its first annual High School Theatre Conference, OnStge, in Spring 2005!
The purpose of this conference is three-fold:†
Students have the opportunity to participate in various breakout sessions that appeal to their interests.† Actors will be given the opportunity to perform a short scene, monologue, or song and to receive feedback from the experienced TWS resident staff and instructors.† Other performance breakout sessions will explore stage combat, using/handling props, and even beginning tap dance!
If a studentís preference is behind-the-scenes rather than in the spotlight there are also valuable tech breakout sessions that delve into costume design, basic carpentry, sewing, and more!
Onstge will be held April 23 & 24 at The Western Stage, Hartnell College, 411 Central Ave. in Salinas.† Call 755-6987 for more information and registration forms.
