ALL SOUTHERN HIGH SCHOOL THEATRE PROJECT (ASHSTP) AUDITIONS
Carbondale Community Arts in partnership the Southern Illinois University’s McLeod Summer Playhouse (MSP) invites area high school students to audition for the 2018 All Southern High School Theatre Project (ASHSTP) production of Once Upon a Mattress, a hilarious, musical re-telling of “The Princess and the Pea.”
ASHSTP is an intensive musical theater day-camp for youth interested in acting, singing, dance, and theatrical workshops. Students work with professional directors to study all aspects of musical theatre performance. Workshop participants gain skills in vocal training, choreography, and dramaturgy.
