Teen Shakespeare 2014: Auditions for Love’s Labour’s Lost
Carousel Theatre’s very popular Teen Shakespeare Program will stage the comedy Love’s Labour’s Lost this summer!
The Teen Shakespeare Program is an excellent training opportunity for teen actors ages 13-18 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, while rehearsing for an outdoor production. This year we are staging the comedy Love’s Labour’s Lost, directed by Mike Stack and assisted by Melissa Oei. Love’s Labour’s Lost will run at Performance Works on Granville Island from July 25-August 9, 2014.
Admission to the program is by audition. To book an audition please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (604) 669-3410, ext 201.
