The Ensemble

The Ensemble is a group of older high school aged actors who have participated for several sessions in the Guild. Ensemble actors perform the works of contemporary playwrights (such as Jean Giraudoux, Christopher Fry, Caryl Churchill, Samuel Beckett, Karen Hartman, to name a few) as well as original premiere works. Within rehearsals, the actors also discuss and practice audition techniques and develop their own head shots and acting resumes. The Ensemble culminates with a full production in the spring.

That's quite a job. You might even call it...The Task.
