The My Academy program will offer students Grades 9 to 12 a unique integrated arts opportunity to enrich their existing high school arts programming by working closely with the Stratford Festival and its artisans.
The My Academy flyer 2017 page 1 AMDSB is partnering with the Stratford Festival again to offer students across our board the opportunity to further develop their acting skills.
“We’re delighted to be able to make this opportunity available to students in Avon Maitland Schools,” says Executive Director Anita Gaffney. “Not only will My Academy help participants develop new skills and gain insight into different theatrical careers, but it will also allow them to build important relationships within the theatre community.”
My Academy 2017 will be 7 sessions, running through the second semester during the last two periods of each scheduled day. Sessions will be held in the drama room at Stratford Northwestern one week and Goderich DCI the next week.
The schedule is as follows:
- Feb 9, 23
- March 9, 30
- April 13, 27
- May 11
- Feb 16
- March 2, 23
- April 6, 20,
- May 4, 18
There is no cost to the students and transport from their home-school will be provided.
Students attending secondary schools in Perth County will attend the program at Stratford Northwestern, and students attending secondary schools in Huron County will attend the program in Goderich.
We will limit the amount each student can participate if the interest is high.
