Huge FREE Shakespeare opportunity!!

This is an excerpt from email I received this afternoon... I will give the full details in class!
The Oregon Shakespeare Festival is launching a new membership program for young adults called the OSF Players.
This exciting new program is a membership organization for students ages 13-18 with an eye toward creating a deeper relationship with students and teens who come to OSF with student groups.
Sounds cool, yes? Here's the excellent part - they will be doing two focus groups with local students. If you want to be included, you contact them by June 2 indicating interest and you get pizza, soda, and two tickets to Our Town. The two sessions are June 9 & 10 at 5:30pm in Ashland.

I'll provide the contact info and everything else you might be curious about during the remainder of this and next week. I think we should make a point of taking part as much as we can. And yes, this counts for Thespian points.

[UPDATED] OSF Tickets This Summer plus Summer Workshop

We didn't get the numbers we needed, so now comes PLAN B: Wherein I tell you when I am going anyway and you all get tickets pretty much on your own (I will gladly help you try to get tickets together, if you all want to communicate with me). We can then plan on intermission and post show gab sessions (though I am scheduled post show after Dream).
  • July 8 - Comedy of Errors, 8:30pm - Elizabethan Stage
  • July 9 - Midsummer Night's Dream , 2:00pm - Bowmer Theater
  • July 9 - Clay Cart, 8:30pm - Bowmer Theater
  • July 10 - Our Town, 8:30pm - Elizabethan Stage
  • July 11 - Coriolanus, 2:00pm - New Theater
  • July 12 - Othello, 8:30pm - Elizabethan Stage
4pm to 6pm - 1 1/2 to 2 minute monologue - EITHER gonna be a dark comedy or an adaptation of Shakespeare to fit a cast of 10ish. Two I am looking at pretty closely are The Imaginary Invalid (Moiliere) and The Curious Savage (Patrick) - use the Google to discover more about them. Could be VERY fun...and (if Shakespeare (Lear??)) possibly bloody. Signup sheet goes up on Monday!
