Island Shakespeare Festival is happy to announce our 2016 collaboration with Whidbey Children’s Theater, through the Classic Conservatory for Young Adults. Over the two years ISF has developed the CCYA program, created by Eric Mulholland, we have been delighted by the exuberance and hard work of our young adult participants. Similarly, Whidbey Children’s Theater has begun to develop programming serving young adults. Our two executive boards got together, and made the recommendation that we join forces and create a community collaboration to best serve the youth involved, our donors, and the missions of our organizations.

In past summers, CCYA and WCT have had a close relationship: auditions, rehearsals, and classes have been held at WCT, and CCYA has offered summer opportunities for WCT students to work with working theatre professionals. WCT has, since its inception as a nonprofit, desired a summer intensive program for teens. In the past, limited access to a range of professional actors has inhibited the development of that program. A fluctuating WCT teen population has also contributed. With CCYA and ISF, the professionals are here, a template exists for the program, and WCT has a fantastic group of talented and excited teens eager to dive into the challenging work of classic theatre.

Both organizations are very excited about what this collaboration might mean in the future.

The CCYA program will span Monday, July 25 through Sunday, August 21, and will culminate in a performance of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, directed by Kylie McKenzie Soder. Kylie directed Sophocles’ Antigone for CCYA in 2015, and is excited to return in 2016.
