About the program
The Play the Fool Festival’s Rookie Cabaret mentorship program and emerging artist showcase is for emerging physical comedy artists and students of any age. Artists may be creating their very first piece outside of the classroom, or they might be experienced performing artists new to clowning or physical comedy.
Over several weeks, participants work with festival director Christine Lesiak and other mentors to take their idea from concept to stage. They create and rehearse an original short work, then perform it at Play the Fool in the The Rookie Cabaret, always a festival highlight!
