WSW Teens participate in 5 weeks of evening training, show building, and rehearsal and then put on a show!
WSW parent Nancy Adams reports that
“[My kids] learned that they could do something they thought they could NEVER do ( memorize all those lines, get up in front of a group, act, be scared and do it anyway) -WSW was literally life-changing for both of them. Seriously everyone says sport teams develop teamwork, but all the kids learned great teamwork in WSW. . .”
This year, WSW teens work with professional coaches – dance teacher and choreographer Anja Dingman of Minds in Motion, will inspire amazing movement each night, and Shakespearean actor and teacher, Phillip Stommel will work with voices and character development.
Veteran professional director Russell St Clair will lead the production, while costumer Jessica Watt will work with our high school interns to create costumes.
“There is a place for every teen in Winters Shakespeare Workshop, seasoned performers and newbies will welcome 5 great weeks of training and practice to build the show, ” says producer Marylou Linvill.
Workshops begin June 17, Sunday through Thursday evenings from 6:30 to 9:30 in Winters City Park.
Free public performances of WSW ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, with music, will be on July 20 and 21, Friday and Saturday in Winters City Park (4th and Main).
