The FST Groundlings are going to Scotland in 2017! Join us!

Break out your kilts!

Fairbanks Shakespeare Theater is recruiting local high-school-aged actors interested in performing a Shakespeare show next summer in Edinburgh, Scotland. The theater will be holding an informational meeting about this extraordinary opportunity at 6 PM July 25 in the conference room of the Noel Wien Library, 1215 Cowles Street.

“We were thrilled to get nominated for this festival,” said Eric Heyne, president of the Fairbanks Shakespeare Theater Board. “It’s a chance for some local students to have an amazing cultural experience, and for us to share our talent with the world.”

The show will be part of the American High School Theater Festival, which brings together outstanding high school drama programs from across the country to perform shows in conjunction with the world-renowned Edinburgh Fringe. Students will first rehearse and stage a show during the FST Groundlings Summer Camp in June 2017, then restage the show for the festival in early August 2017. Students will travel for two weeks, including a two-day trip to London and a private rail journey to Edinburgh, where they will spend ten days rehearsing and performing, with plenty of cultural experiences in between.

FST is specifically looking for students who will be aged 13-18 in summer 2017. The theater will be helping raise funds for the trip and will be asking students and their families to contribute to the effort. For more information email
