This year's workshop, in addition to applying instruction in acting, voice, and stage movement techniques, will focus on rehearsing and presenting William Shakespeare's "The Tempest," condensed and adapted by Caroline Good.
The middle school group, directed by Alisa Isaacs-Bailey and assisted by Lauren Good and Beth Bax, will meet 12:30-2:30 p.m. Monday-Friday both weeks (June 18-29) at the Hazel Day Longden Theatre to rehearse a fun version of the play.
The high school group, directed by Good and assisted by Heather Owens, TJ Tincher and Kenny Buchanan, will meet 3-5:30 p.m. Monday-Friday both weeks (June 18-29). They will rehearse their version set on a South Pacific island that includes head hunters and islanders in grass skirts, contemporary music and of course, a chase.
