The Idaho Shakespeare Festival regales audiences with tales from the Bard, Agatha Christie, Moliere and other playwrights on a regular basis. But today, they're taking a break and giving the spotlight to the next generation of actors.
The Idaho Shakespeare Festival Apprentice Program will present its end-of-term showcase at 7 p.m. The program provides high-school students with more than 200 hours of hands-on learning, including lessons in play analysis, improv, speech, costuming, production and shop work. ISF apprentices are allowed into the 10-week program by audition only, and work backstage during the company's productions.
Tonight, the students will show off their newfound skills alongside Boise Rock School students. Admission is by donation, with a suggested minimum of $5. Seating will first-come, first-serve. As with any ISF production, bring the bug spray, blanket and picnic, and be prepared for a grand ol' night at the theater.
