ISU Theatre is seeking people in the campus and Ames communities fluent in several foreign languages to help coach actors for David Edgar's Olivier-Award winning play Pentecost, which will be presented in February. The majority of characters in the play speak languages other than English and volunteers are needed to coach the actors in Arabic (Kuwaiti dialect), Russian, Ukrainian, Bulgarian, Azeri, Afghan, Bosnian (Roma), Turkish and Sri Lankan (Sinhalese). The play will be cast in October to allow the actors time to work on their languages. Those who could volunteer their time are asked to contact Gregg Henry, 4- 7611.

Seminars run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and are designed so participants may attend all or part of the session. It is not essential to have completed the 12+ Supervisory Program to attend B12+.
