Canadore Grads Take to the Stage for Rep 21
Jul 11, 2019
Rep 21 is back for its 13th season with Ken Ludwig’s Shakespeare in Hollywood, a supernatural screwball romp, full of entertainment, and even a little bit of education.
Rep 21 marks the culmination of actor training for the Acting for Stage and Screen Program at Canadore College.
Take the glitz and glamour of 1930s Hollywood, populated by real-life, yet delightfully exaggerated, personalities of the movie scene. Add a sophisticated German director with an artistic vision, a couple of misplaced supernatural beings, and one of William Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies of all time, and you get Ken Ludwig’s Shakespeare in Hollywood.
Shakespeare in Hollywood is directed by Rod Carley, Artistic Director of Rep 21 and the Acting Program. Performances take place at 7:30 p.m. from July 17 to 20 at the Canadore College TV Studio (Room C 171), 100 College Drive. Again, this season, instead of charging admission Rep 21 will be accepting financial donations in support of the Gathering Place.

It provides access to over 80 full-time quality programs and has outstanding faculty and provides success services to students from nearly 400 Canadian communities and 15 international countries.

Canadore receives less than 50 per cent of its traditional funding from the provincial Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities and relies on its own innovation and entrepreneurial endeavors and generous donors for the balance.
