Hot House, n. (hát háws) is a transparent structure where budding student artists who require warm, regulated conditions can grow.
Studio 58 is thrilled to introduce a brand new initiative. Hot House is a 90 minute production on our mainstage that showcases our Acting and Production Students in a new light. For the first time in Studio 58's history, this project will allow our students to complete the entire production cycle by themselves, with expert feeding and watering from a team of dedicated mentors throughout the process. Students will have the opportunity to focus on areas that excite them including acting, playwriting, directing, designing, songwriting, stage managing, and flexing their technical muscles. The project will be overseen by Vancouver director Fay Nass, with support from professional mentors in all areas including: set, props, costume, lighting, sound and video design.
"Last year, I had the pleasure of directing a one-act play as part of FourPlay. I was impressed by the level of professionalism and talent among the students and the generosity of the faculty and staff. I love the concept behind Hot House as it creates possibilities for the students to be the leaders and drivers of the stories. They get to work together, learn and grow as artists.”
“Being the overseeing director and mentor on Hot House is exciting. I get to work with student writers, actors, directors and designers and develop the production as a whole. I am so happy to be back and to offer my knowledge and expertise to such talented future theatre professionals." - Fay Nass
