We also offer a full summer EMC Internship Program for college-aged students, as well as a part-time Internship for high school students.

THEATRE FOR YOUNG AUDIENCES
Each summer, Infinity brings theatre for young audiences to Anne Arundel County!
Our 2014 Production:
Grab your royal attire and come hear the latest announcement from the News of the Realm… The Emperor loves fashion! He will spend a fortune in gold and gems for a weaver to create the most fabulous robe ever seen! However, the crafty weaver claims that his beautiful fabric is invisible to those who are hopelessly witless. Will the kingdom be able to see the Emperor’s new robe? Will the swindling weaver be found out? Based on the classic folktale by Hans Christian Anderson, this story challenges the imagination and questions perception of leadership and truth, through the eyes of a child. The comedy mounts through outrageous performances, audience participation, original music, and lively dancing. THE EMPEROR'S NEW CLOTHES is a royal romp and fabulous fashion extravaganza for all ages!

Our goal is to inspire and help prepare students for theatre in higher education and immersion into the professional theatre business. We offer engagements in performing, stage management, production, and general theatre management. All season interns will work alongside industry professionals, gaining valuable skills and experience. Acting Interns will have the opportunity to understudy and/or perform in mainstage productions, perform in our children’s show, and will have required technical, production, and front-of-house responsibilities. All interns are invited to take part in summer master classes free of charge.
College students and recent graduates are invited to apply and audition for our 2015 Summer Internship Program. We attend StrawHat Auditions in New York City.
For those interested in membership in Actors' Equity Association, Infinity does offer Equity Membership Candidate (EMC) points.
Each year, Infinity Theatre Company is proud to bring industry experts to Annapolis to lead our Summer Master Class Series. The classes are open to the public for students ages 15 and up, and often include Audition Technique, Musical Theatre Performance, Dance, and Acting/Viewpoints.
High School Internships
Infinity also offers part-time summer internships to local high school age students interested in learning more about professional theatre. Students spend their time observing rehearsals, working backstage, ushering, assisting in the box office, helping with publicity and events, and particpating in classes.
Infinity Theatre Company offers artistic workshops for kids ages 3 – 12 led by professional teaching artists. Workshops include theatre games, improvisation, movement, music, and more! We can customize the classes to fit the needs and size of your group. Infinity is currently booking workshop dates for Summer 2013!

Robin Cannon (Director of Education) played The Mute in Infinity's production of THE FANTASTICKS. Robin discovered her love of teaching in 2005 through the Berkshire Theatre Festival, where she had the opportunity to teach in public schools, direct numerous after-school programs and summer camps, and choreograph shows for kids. Robin has been teaching theatre, music, and movement in New York City since 2008 for Arts For All - a non-profit arts outreach organization. She also teaches music and dance at Long Island City Kids - an enrichment center for early childhood development. Robin can be found entertaining children all over NYC at birthday parties and events as "Captain Robin" with her hot pink guitar "Pinkerton." A very shy Robin discovered her love of being on stage at the age of 6, and aspires to give kids the same confidence and skills that she learned early on through performing. She has been seen on professional stages, in television commercials, and print ads. Robin holds a BFA in Musical Theatre from The University of Mississippi and an AA from Tyler Junior College in Speech/Theatre. Member Actor's Equity. robincannon.com
