Yokohama Theatre Group's upcoming classes.

All the info is on the site:

The classes are open to people 16 years of age and up. We will consider taking students under 16, but in that case we'd like to interview them (and their parents) to ensure they'd be a good fit.

If you'd be so kind to pass this info along to anyone you think might be interested, that would be wonderful.

These are currently three English theater groups active in Tokyo/Yokohama. Black Stripe has put on some notable serious productions. My daughter was mesmerized by _Doubt_.
