The program is an excellent training opportunity for teen actors ages 13-17 yrs. Teen actors will receive training in classical voice for the stage, Shakespeare text, movement, and character development under the tutelage of instructors who are members for Vancouver’s professional theatre community. This year we are staging a modern retelling of THE TEMPEST – Shakespeare’s magical tale; complete with a shipwreck, an enchanted island, sprites, the deformed Caliban, and a magician.
