Will Power To Youth gets ready for The Tempest

The Shakespeare Center of Los Angeles’ developmental youth program Will Power To Youth is about to present its original adaptation of Shakespeare’s The Tempest for three performances August 11 – 13, 2011.
WPY is an exciting and unique summer employment opportunity for youth aged 15-19. The program participants, many of whom attend overcrowded urban schools and come from families living at or below the poverty line, are employed 30 hours a week for seven weeks, and work closely with professional artists and human relations facilitators. Together, they create a unique adaptation of a Shakespeare play that is relevant to, and inspired by, their personal experiences. Inspiring, to be sure.  

Performances will take place on August 11 at 10:00 am and August 12 – 13 at 7:30 pm. Click Here for tickets and more information.
