The Alabama Shakespeare Festival will be holding auditions in Montgomery for its elite two-week theatrical summer camp, the ASF State Youth Theatre Program, on Saturday, November 10 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.  The auditions will take place at ASF, which is located at 1 Festival Drive in Montgomery.

 

Those auditioning must at least be rising high school students with a passion and talent for theatre. For the audition, students should be prepared with a memorized 1 ½ minute monologue. Students may also be asked to read a part from Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. Also required at audition check in is a photo/resume or a list of experience and training. If a professional photograph is not available, a photo representing the student’s current likeness is acceptable.

 

The goal of the camp is to have students learn and work in a regional theatre setting with professional New York based actors. The camp will conclude with two performances of Twelfth Night, which will include the campers as well as their instructors.

 

The 2013 camp will take place from May 27-June 9, 2013. Campers will be housed at Huntingdon College in Montgomery.  Classes and performances will take place at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival. The cost of the two week camp is $1,200 and includes room, board, instruction and performances.  A limited number of scholarships will be available.

The Alabama Shakespeare Festival is among the largest Shakespeare theatres in the world. Designated as The State Theatre of Alabama, ASF has been located in Montgomery since 1985 when it moved from Anniston as a result of Mr. and Mrs. Wynton M. Blount’s gift of a performing arts complex set in the 250-acre Wynton M. Blount Cultural Park. This program/project has been made possible by grants from the Alabama State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.                                                          # # #
