SANTA CRUZ SHAKESPEARE 2015 11 Education and Outreach in the Community INTERNSHIP PROGRAM Every year SCS hires a group of 12 20 interns in all areas of production including acting directing stage management administration and design. Interns are undergraduates or immediate post-grads who spend the summer working beside master artisans throughout the SCS season participate in master classes with seasoned artists and produce their own Fringe production on the outdoor stage. This year we have doubled the number of interns from our inaugural season with students hailing from both East and West Coasts from undergrad and graduate theatre training programs. WEEKEND WITH SHAKESPEARE One weekend in August SCS teams up with UCSC Provost and Professor Sean Keilen to host a symposium about the Shakespeare plays in our season. Performances of the plays are enhanced by panel discussions lectures by esteemed drama and literature scholars hands-on workshops with artists and open-forum discussions. For more information about attending this summer visit santacruzshakespeare.org. COMMUNITY SEATS Last year SCS gave away over 150 seats to community and social service organizations and other non- profits as a way of saying thank you for the important work they do for the Santa Cruz Community. This year our goal is to give away over 300 tickets. FREE SHAKESPEARE YOUTH TICKET Starting in 2015 SCS provides a free groundling ticket to one of its Shakespeare plays to audience members 18 and younger with the purchase of any adult ticket. The 2015 Season free ticket production is Much Ado About Nothing. DON ROTHMAN TALKBACKS Each summer production is host to a limited number of pre-show and post-show discussions. Pre-show discussions provide audience members a chance to speak with the director and designers of a production to learn about the genesis and evolution of the artistic concept. Post-show discussions bring audience members face to face with their favorite actors to ask questions about the performance and the details of the production they have just enjoyed. See the calendar at the back of this program for performances with talkbacks this year. NOON AT THE NICK Held on Fridays at noon at the Nickelodeon Theatre in downtown Santa Cruz Noon at the Nick is a series of brown bag lunch discussions that bring community members together with artists from each of the seasons productions for discussions about the artistic process and a sneak peak at what each production has in store. PARTNERSHIP WITH WEST CREATIVE PERFORMING ARTS SCS partners with WEST Creative Performing Arts a K-12 performing arts organization here in Santa Cruz. Each year we coordinate performance opportunities for young WEST actors in our productions and many of our artists and scholars teach workshops for WESTs high school Shakespeare intensive in the summer.
