Are you Ready for an unforgettable summer experience alongside professional artists?
Then the SKAMpede Young Company is for you!
SKAMpede is a annual festival featuring professional performers from across Canada. A mobile audience travels the Galloping Goose and takes in 12 short shows. With support from BC Arts Council, we are thrilled to offer Victoria youth a high quality training opportunity.
SKAMpede Young Company members will observe, discuss, critique and befriend national, provincial and local theatre professionals as those professionals rehearse and perform in SKAMpede. The Young Company will participate in workshops, discussions and rehearsals facilitated by skilled and professional teachers and have full access to the SKAMpede performances. After SKAMpede, the Young Company will meet daily for 10 days to create their own mini-festival of short works to be performed in a public space under a tent. What could be better you ask? How about SKAM provides lunch and snacks every day, too!
