Every year the Arden Shakespeare Gild hosts the Young Actors Workshop for children of all ages. Children are separated by age, and each age group learns to perform a scene from Shakespeare.
I’d been meaning to shoot backstage for years. I have shot performances in years past, but from in front of the stage, where all is choreographed, rehearsed, and professionally lit. Backstage has more opportunity for surprise, odd lighting, nervous pre-performance antics, and the visual contrast between people being themselves yet in costume. Here is the link to the photos:

The above link will take you to the Flickr website. Click on the first photo to see it larger. You can see the photos at many sizes, up to 1200 pixels wide or tall. This largest size is good for printing 4×6-inch photos. Just download them to your computer and get prints made. Questions? Please call me, Danny Schweers, at 302 475-0998.
