ATTENTION ALL ACTORS AND THEATRE TECHIES!
Coming this fall, the Young Actors Theatre Workshop is very honored to begin it's tenth year at Cubberley School. 
  
The Young Actors Theatre Workshop is an after-school enrichment program under the artistic direction of Marie Contreras Romero and assisting as costume designer, Suzette Picazo.  The workshop is dedicated to instilling an appreciation for the dramatic arts with lessons in script interpretation, auditioning for roles, fundamental acting techniques, stage movement, and character development.  Participants are also introduced to sound and lighting design, set construction and painting, and production performance. 
 
During the rehearsal process each student is encouraged to explore their imagination through emotional, verbal and physical expression, and as they interact through creative teamwork, a strong camaraderie with their fellow students is developed.  Throughout this process, the YATW strives to help build self-confidence, encourage the acceptance of others, recognize each participant's artistic talent, and give each student the opportunity to shine and have fun.   The culmination is a rewarding ensemble production performance that will inspire, enlighten and entertain audiences.
 
Open auditions for students grades 4th-8th will be held in the Cubberley auditorium on:
 
Tuesday, September 11 from 3:30-5:45 p.m.
Wednesday, September 12 from 3:30-5:45 p.m.
Thursday, September 13 from 3:30-5:45 p.m.
Friday, September 14 from 3:30-5:45 p.m.
Wednesday, September 19 from 3:30-5:45 p.m.
Thursday, September 20 from 3:30-5:45 p.m.
Friday, September 21 from 3:30-5:45 p.m.
 
The workshop will meet on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday in the auditorium.  Students interested in acting, prop and set construction, or being part of the technical crew and costume design are welcome.  There will be a workshop fee.  The play performances will be held in December.
