Join Shakespearean Youth Theatre's Summer Ensemble as we tackle the sublime and challenging The Two Gentlemen of Verona. We are looking for eleven young actors (of all backgrounds, ethnicities, and gender expressions), ages 13-19, to participate in this re-imagining of the Bard's (possibly) very first play, as newly set in a 1990's suburb, replete with Walkmans, Emo ballads, and a riot grrrl soundtrack. Think Shakespearean comedy and romance, but in Edina.
