Adam Brake is the Associate Director of Theatre Newfoundland Labrador, and runs the Sara…h McDonald Youth Theatre. Adam is directing Romeo and Juliet with his group of students (and some other invited guests) and we talked about theatre for young audiences, Shakespeare, and performance more generally speaking.
Adam is a very bright, and very passionate, person and theatre artist and it was a blast to talk to him (as always). Adam also instructs in the theatre program at Grenfell, so it was interesting to talk to him about his approach to Shakespeare, and text, performance techniques, directing and how to engage students (and others) in the creative process.
The Sara…h McDonald Youth Theatre program is a cornerstone of theatre training on the west coast, that provides an incredible opportunity for young people to get involved in the theatre and it’s great to see them thriving.
TNL is also gearing up for their summer season in Cow Head, and you can find more about that, and the Youth Theatre at their website.
This is also a rare opportunity to plug an event before it happens, and here’s a link to the Romeo and Juliet Facebook Event Page.
And, why not, here’s a link to Grenfell’s BFA Theatre Program!
