Acting Up (in Acadiana) announces that registration for The Summer Youth Shakespeare Ensemble's 15th Anniversary Season has begun. The 16-day intensive performing arts camp runs July 15-30, 2017 with performances of AS YOU LIKE IT on July 27, 28, 29 & 30, 2017; all activities take place at the Acadiana Center for the Arts. Students ages 10-Senior in high school play all roles in this music filled comedy.
Students study all aspects of the performing arts with professional faculty members and an extensive support staff. Faculty and staff include Hector LaSala, set design; Chad Trahan, costume design; Amy Waguespack, acting and directing, and numerous members of Acting Up (in Acadiana), including Hannah Briggs, Sarah Mikayla Brown, Lian Cheramie, Heaven Moore, George Saucier, and Cathy Wagnon. Each day begins with an hour long company class followed by small group workshops where students study in age and experience based groups. Afternoons are spent applying what they have learned in their workshops to their full production of Shakespeare’s AS YOU LIKE IT.
Tuition for the camp is $575 and can be paid in installments after a non-refundable deposit is received; some partial scholarships are available. For more information or to register call (337) 739-4273.
