For 26 summers, Carousel Theatre for Young People’s Teen Shakespeare Program has been providing pre-professional theatre training to teens 13-18 in an intensive six-week program. The program provides an opportunity for participants to enhance their performing abilities and further their development as emerging artists while providing the community with free and accessible theatre.
Over the years, many participants have gone on to grace some of Canada’s top stages including the Stratford Festival, Canstage, The Belfry Theatre, Bard on the Beach, and the Arts Club Theatre Company. Some of the program’s notable alumni include actor Jennifer Paterson, director Jack Paterson, and CTYP’s own Artistic Director, Carole Higgins. Actors Rebecca Auerbach, Susan Coodin, Alessandro Juliani, and Vancouver-West End MLA Spencer Chandra-Herbert also have early roots with the program.
TSP is an excellent training opportunity for teen actors to 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.
