The Senior Ensemble workshop series was an intensive 15 week course for young and upcoming actors between the ages 18 and 25. The series taught these young actors directorial, acting and writing skills for stage and the workshop culminated in a successful, experimental final production, ‘Love and Other Objects’. There was a diverse group in this mix, dancers, actors and writers.
Stages has always prioritized working with students – especially encouraging to produce original plays. We have worked with Royal College, Methodist College, Museus College, Ananda College extensively. We have always been interested in expanding the vision of our theater company to youngsters who will take the reins in the arts in the years to come, as sincere artists and conscientious citizens.
