Audition Call - One Act Plays!
This upcoming February ACT will present two one act plays with a theme suitable for all ages; Fairy Tales. Or to be more precise, they will be funny modern interpretations of some of the classic stories.
Auditions for these plays will be held on Oct. 29 & 30, in the evening. Monologues are optional for actors, as if they would like they may simply come in and read from the script.
One of these plays will cast actors aged 18 and up, while the other play will cast exclusively for younger actors, ages 12-17.

Improv Training Workshop
ACT, in collaboration with THE FORTKNIGHTS!, will host an IMPROV TRAINING WORKSHOP coordinated by Justin Shaw and Cameron MacDonald.
Where: Faculty Lounge, Room 100, Main Building, UPEI Campus
When: October 20, November 3, November 17
Cost: FREE! (open to all ages and no experience is nessessary)
This is a great opportunity to broaden your acting skills and help in situations where blank lines can become a stage success. This fun training group will practice listening skills, as well as methods of constructing characters, scenes, and environments. The goal of the workshop is to show people that performing improv is more than just being funny in front of an audience. Rather, it is an art form that can increase confidence, and strengthen creativity. For performers, these are vital skills! The motto of the Fortknights: “We don’t improv. We improve.”
Justin Shaw has recently appeared in Vagabond Productions’ Taming of the Shrew, Popalopalots and Shakespeare’s Macbeth in addition to coordinating various events for the UPEI Theatre Society. Cameron MacDonald was also the coordinator of the Colonel Grey High School Improv Group and performed in comedy nights at the Solid Rock Cafe and Popalopalots.
