Performers cast in the production receive a weekly stipend and will perform at Hartford Stage on Monday, Aug. 6. Auditions will be held on Wednesday, May 23. Applications are now available on the Greater Hartford Arts Council's
website and must be submitted by Friday, May 11, 2012. For more information about Breakdancing Shakespeare, visit  Hartford Stage.

Designed for aspiring filmmakers, this two-week course in basic filmmaking teaches students to create their own short, narrative film. Topics covered will include film analysis, scriptwriting, shooting basics, and editing. Some degree of familiarity with digital editing tools such as iMovie or Final Cut is helpful, but not necessary. Students will walk away with a copy of their own short film, along with a clearer understanding of pre-production, production, and post-production elements.
