Welcome to the Newest Member of our ‘Hamlet’ Cast!
Please join us in giving a warm welcome to the newest addition of TSP’s cast of Hamlet! Although he is slightly nervous, he is very much looking forward to his important role in this tragic tale. Catch him and the rest of our talented teens in Hamlet July 26-August 10 at 7:30pm! Admission is FREE although advanced seating tickets can be purchased for $5! ($6 with a blanket…it gets a little chilly when the sun goes down!)
In addition to our new guest, THE POSTERS FOR HAMLET HAVE ALSO ARRIVED! This afternoon, we braved the cloudy weather in order to distribute them around Vancouver. Before we left, our new friend kindly reminded me to bring an umbrella. When I asked him how he knew it was going to rain, he smiled his loveliest smile (very much like the one in the above picture) and said he could feel it in his bones. (What, no laughs? Geez…tough crowd!)
We are now officially, THREE days away from the first rehearsal of Hamlet. We’re all very excited to hear the first read-through of the play and the interpretations that the young actors bring to their characters! Furthermore, we are having our first production meeting this afternoon. This year, the creative team consists of Mike Stack (Assistant Instructor), Melissa Oei (Assistant Instructor) Stephanie Kong (Costume Designer), Mishelle Cuttler (Sound Designer), Noah Feaver (Lighting Designer), Ashley Noyes (Stage Manager) and Michael Gunion (Assistant Stage Manager). We’re looking forward to hearing all the great ideas and plans they have in store.
