If you’re a girl aged 13-15 who lives in Toronto, check this out: Nightwood Theatre is recruiting for its free Busting Out theatre program, which we wrote about in the Fall 2004 issue of Shameless. The participants of the program will have the opportunity to create and perform a play for public presentation. Professional theatre artists will lead the girls in classes, which include acting, playwrighting, design, movement and clown. And it’s a whole lot of fun, too.
Here’s the info you need to apply:
- Saturday sessions (1pm-4pm) begin on June 3rd and run to August 12th, 2006.
- A week-long intensive workshop from Monday, August 14th to Saturday, August 19th.
- A public presentation, included in the 23rd Annual Groundswell Festival, will be performed on Sunday, August 20th.
- Location: Nightwood Studio (located in the Distillery District, 55 Mill Street).
- Only 14 participants will be selected.
