Early stages profiled in The Echo

Angela Long, reporter with the Haliburton County Echo, dropped in on the Early Stages program in late July to observe the participants in and talk with director Scot Denton. The result was a fabulous profile of the program, which you can read by clicking here.

Early Stages is a youth  apprenticeship program presented by Highlands Summer Festival. The young people learn acting skills and, as the article points out, many of the lessons will stand them in good stead off the stage as well.

Auditions for Early Stages participants are held early in the new year. Announcements will be made in local newspapers and posted on this blog.

Here are a couple of photos from this year program:
