SHAKES in a Day
Friday, June 27 at 7pm
From scripts-in-hand to curtain raised within 30 hours. Shakespeare in a Day is sure to entertain. Our 15 students this summer, aged 12-19, will be faced with this challenge that will put their performance and improv skills to the test. Live theatre at its best! Come laugh/cry/holler with us and support local youth and community theatre with this unique performance!

Shakes in a Day is a fundraiser benefiting (CSYSC) Center Stage Youth Summer Conservatory and their 2014 culminating project The Tempest.

The 2014 CSYSC ensemble midterm challenge is to take randomly selected Shakespeare play Thursday afternoon, learn it, rehearse it, and perform it Friday evening. It is certain to be a wildly fun evening.
The chosen play will be randomly selected from the following list:

Comedy of Errors, Hamlet, Macbeth, Midsummer Night's Dream, Much Ado about Nothing, Romeo and Juliet, Taming of the Shrew, Twelfth Night, or What You Will

We will be setting up a couple tables in the lobby for what we affectionately call the "Josh Brightman" scholarship fund. Come peruse a variety of used books, find any that piqué your interest, take them home with a dollar or two donation.

CSYSC now in its fifth year, is over 300 hours of theatre training for local youth. Classes include acting, theatre history, voice and movement, improvisation, stage combat, mask, dance, music, clowning, technical theatre and many other special topics. Young artists learn first hand what it takes to be part of a repertory theatre, learning all the aspects of theatrical production while preparing for their culminating performance in classical theatre.
