Second Age Project
The Second Age Project takes its name from the character Jacques famous “all the world’s a stage” monologue from Shakespeare’s As You Like It.
The Second Age Project offers exciting training and performance opportunities to enthusiastic and talented young performers in their 'second age' (high school-age)! Our programs are open to 12-18 year olds.
In 2021, The Second Age Project offers extra curricular acting training, rehearsal and performance opportunities. The Second Age Project now offers students the opportunity to Online and In-person!
Following the successful implementation of online classes in 2020, we are excited to extend this online offering in 2021 for regional young actors or those unable to participate in our in-person production for other reasons.
"All the world's a stage
and all the men and women, merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages..."
The Second Age is the school child with 'shining morning face'
