ORANGETOWN, N.Y. -- Children's Shakespeare Theatre will represent the United States at the World Festival of Children's Theater in Ontario this summer. CST is located in Palisades.
CST is a small nonprofit in Rockland County. It's in its 17th season -- and finally going international. The company has been invited to go to Stratford, Ontario, in June, to join groups from 20 countries from around the world. CST will be the only group from the United States.
The troupe consists of 11 kids, ranging in ages from 9-14, including some who have never been out of the country. In this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, they will meet hundreds of other young thespians. "They will learn from each other and make each other laugh," a press release notes. "It will be a shining week of peace and cooperation between the youngest ambassadors from around the world."
For more information about CST, contact its artistic direct, Diana Green at 845-262-0278 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit CST's website.
The company's next production is "Coriolanus," which will be performed in April. For tickets, click here.
