The Western Stage Young Company Holding Auditions for
2008 Summer Programs!
The Western Stage Young Company is gearing up for
another summer packed with all kinds of exciting projects for young
actors! The Western Stage Young Company
will be holding auditions for actors between the ages of 9 - 17 to join one of
the most affordable and stimulating arts programs in
Play’s-the-Thing (PtT) will break into two skill concentrations – 1) Acting Intensive and 2) Musical Performance Intensive. The first two weeks all PtT actors will join the YOU*Theater Camp actors in a fast-paced intro to acting, dancing and singing, and will present a short performance for parents and friends at the 2008 Company Meeting on Saturday morning, June 28th.
PtT actors will then break into two groups (actors will choose) to work in depth on basic skills in either non-musical acting or musical performance.
YCPresents (YCP) is a production-oriented program that focuses on aspects of rehearsal, technical production, and performance. The Works of William Shakespeare will be the focus. Although YCP actors will still work on singing and dancing skills, the focus will be more on building actor skills of investigating and unlocking the mysteries of text and meter, and interpreting Shakespeare’s classic stories.
Interested students and parents should call The Western Stage at 759-6037 to schedule an audition appointment. For more information on these exciting summer projects call Susanne Burns at 755-6929.
