Attention Wyoming stage designers, theatre directors and dance choreographers

Postmark deadline is a week from tomorrow -- Friday, Feb. 5 -- for the Wyoming Arts Council performing arts fellowships in theatre direction, dance choreography and design for the stage.

The WAC welcomes applications from Wyoming residents 18 or older who are not full-time students pursuing high school, college or university art-related degrees.

The WAC will award up to three fellowships of $3,000 each to honor the most exciting, creative work by Wyoming directors, choreographers and stage designers. Jurors for the competition are theatre director Eric Hayashi from Walnut Creek, Calif., and dancer and choreographer Lisa Wymore, dance professor at University of California, Berkeley.

The agency’s fellowships are on a four-year rotation schedule among music composition; theatre and dance performance; music performance; and theatre direction, dance choreography and design for the stage.
