For Advanced Actors
The Shoreline Actors Collective (SAC) in the Kidz Konnection Studio has become the place to be all summer. Actors, ages 13 and up, come together on a flexible summer rehearsal schedule determined by the troupe, usually in the evening, to make new friends, see old ones, and put on some Shakespeare. We’re doing MacBeth this year, to be performed at the Annual Shakespeare in the Gardens Event on August 17 and 18. Actors also present an educational workshop on Shakespeare to young readers at the Henry Carter Hull Library.
