Is “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” your thing?
The Arizona Theatre Company is accepting applications for its Teen Critic Program. Selected students will learn how to write a professional-caliber theater review. They are invited to free opening night performances, where they will receive a press packet and get preferred press seating. They can participate in workshops and have their work professionally reviewed.
Students will write reviews to be published either in a school newspaper or online. Students who apply must be available to attend:
• “The Kite Runner,” Sept. 17
• “George is Dead,” Oct. 23
• “Ain’t Misbehavin’,” Dec. 4
• “[title of show]” (yes, this really is the title), Jan. 29
• “The Glass Menagerie,” March 5
• “The Second City Does Arizona, or Close But No Saguaro,” April 9
Applications received by May 30 will receive priority consideration. Applications are accepted through Aug. 24. To apply, go to www.aztheatreco.org/index.html? education_teencritic.html&1 or call 884-8210.
