Piedmont Players Theatre (PPT) announces its TREASURE ISLAND Youth Audition Workshop, set for Saturday, March 23, 2013 from 9am-11am.
This workshop will focus on preparing young students to audition for a play, specifically geared towards PPT's upcoming production of Treasure Island. Skills developed will be in stage presence, stage movement and effective auditioning techniques.
If your child has ever wanted to audition but just didn't know how, has auditioned many times and just can't seem to get that role, or just wants to fine tune their audition skills, this workshop is for you.
You may recognize Edward from his PPT debut, playing Bob Ewell in PPT's Production of To Kill a Mockingbird. He earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting from the University of Central Florida. During a four year conservatory style program, he explored the roles of Shakespeare's Hamlet, and an all time favorite, Detective Tupolski from The Pillowman, among others. He was given the opportunity to originate the role of Douglas from Shapeshifter, a play written by award winning author and UCF faculty member Laura Schellhardt. Enjoying all aspects of theatre, Edward spent time shooting short films in Los Angeles after spending a summer season with the Utah Shakespeare Festival tech and production crew, helping build sets and run performances of HMS Pinafore, and Antony and Cleopatra. In Colorado, he was able to continue his love of Shakespeare by playing Romeo for the Westcliffe Center for the Performing Arts. Edward was recently cast in PPT's spring musical, Monty Python's SPAMALOT, opening at the Meroney Theater on April 18th.
