Seattle Performance Workshop
The summer, 2022 BAYFEST Youth Theatre Performance Workshop will run from August 8-20, from 9:00-1:30 each day (except a day off on Sunday August 14 and 9:00-5:30 on Saturday August 20).
Classes/rehearsals will be held at Chief Sealth High School in West Seattle, and performances will also be at several venues in West Seattle. This year, through the generous support of our donors, all program costs are being fully funded, and participants will be paid a $175 stipend for their participation.
We are looking for 18-20 participants, ages 14-19 (though we will occasionally accept younger applicants on a case-by-case basis), who have a strong interest in learning acting, movement and related skills, though you DO NOT have to have prior experience in performing to apply — many of our wonderful past students have come to us with no acting or performance training, but have wound up loving the program. Your interest and commitment and willingness to be a part of a truly collaborative ensemble is what counts!
Classes/rehearsals will be led by some of BAYFEST’s top teaching artists, who will work with will build a performance that showcases participants’ skills in acting, movement/dance, spoken word poetry and comedy. We have put together this kind of show many times before and the process and the results are always great. Instructions and easy application can be found HERE.
