There has been a lot of drama recently at the Harquail Theatre. Of course, it’s all about auditions.
These tryouts are part of the “Young at Arts” programme which is designed to give Cayman’s young performers a less- stressful idea of what the audition experience is like in the entertainment industry. It gets a lot more cut-throat at higher levels.
“Some people get less than a minute on stage, because they quickley look at you and within a minute they can say no this person isn’t going to work, and they tell you thank you, and we spend atleast 10 minutes with a student, sometimes 15, trying to get as much as possible out of them, because you know sometimes not everybody is able to be creative or be that creative within two seconds they can pull something out,” said Artistic Director for the Cayman National Cultural Foundation, Henry Muttoo
They call this a “summer intensive” instead of a summer camp, and at the end the group has to produce a play of their own using the skills they’ve learned
