Einstein S.T.A.G.E. has been awarded a performance slot at the prestigious American High School Theatre Festival, held annually as part of the Fringe Festival – the world’s largest performing arts festival, located in historic Edinburgh, Scotland!
The selection of our program for this honor reflects the tremendous work our students and staff members have done over many years of theatre making here at home. We are one of only 48 school groups nationwide who have been awarded this opportunity.
The festival, which was held in August 2014, provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for us to travel to Edinburgh and experience firsthand the world-renowned Fringe Festival through our own performance and through attendance at other Fringe shows.
Read all about it here:
As participants in the festival, we will select a show for production and will design it for easy travel. We will be given a performance venue and four performances, plus a rehearsal, during the 10-day stay in Edinburgh.
During our stay in Scotland we will have the chance to take many arranged side trips to wonderful places like Stirling Castle. We will spend 10 nights in Scotland and 2 nights in London, where we will take a full guided tour and take in a world-class West End show. And while we are there we will not only be able to share our wonderful theatrical family with the world, but we’ll also be able to experience a huge variety of theatre pieces, mingling with thousands of actors, directors, writers and producers – not to mention the hundreds of thousands of theatergoers who converge upon Edinburgh every year
During the course of the 2013-2014 school year we will be participating in many fundraising projects to help raise money to offset the high cost of travel.
