Come work with Bay Street’s own Associate Artistic Director, Will Pomerantz, as he leads students through the fundamentals of acting, directing, and designing. Students in this program will work collaboratively in groups as miniature production teams to act, direct, and design scenes from classic plays. Each group’s scene will be presented on Bay Street Theater’s Mainstage for family and friends to attend on Friday.
