I take this opportunity to inform you of a dynamic theatrical initiative, “Home Grown”, launched by my friend Badr Jafar.
This philanthropic program is a joint collaboration between The Middle East Theatre Academy and Kevin Spacey Foundation. “Home Grown” is a rare opportunity for selected youths aged 18-25 from across the Middle East & North Africa to receive a two-week training course by a professional team of actors including the two-time Academy Award Winner Kevin Spacey.

The program will take place in Sharjah between the 11th and 25th January 2015, and all participant costs (including flights and transportation) will be borne by the sponsors. The culmination of this program will be a theatrical production by its participants based on an important regional theme, performed in front of an audience on the evening of Sunday 25th of January.
All audition applications must be received online on www.middleeasttheatre.org by 15th December 2014 with further interviews to be conducted afterwards via Skype and where possible in person in the UAE.
Feel free to spread the word amongst your friends, family and peers, and visit their website and various social media sites listed below for further information.
Should you have any further questions, you may contact the Project Coordinator, Alicia White firstname.lastname@example.org or submit your query online at the Middle East Theatre Academy.
