A couple of recent graduates of Rosebud School of the Arts are making their names in the world.
Emily Cambridge is a recipient of the Lieutenant Governor of Alberta Emerging Artist Award.
"I think there were 150 applicants and I think there was a total of ten recipients, but that was from all arts disciplines including visual arts, music and everything," related Paul Muir, Education Director at Rosebud Theatre and School of the Arts. "In terms of performing arts, I think there was only three and, of course, Emily was one of them."
Cambridge, whose stage name is Emily Marisabe, graduated from the RSA Mentorship Programme in Acting and hopes to bring theatre to young, rural audiences across Alberta. She will be a director of the Canadian Badlands Passion Play in July.

Sarah Robertson will be mentored by renowned Canadian actor and musician Tom Jackson as part of the Governor General's Performing Arts Awards Mentorship Program.
"Someone who has won the (Lifetime) Artistic Achievement Award gets to choose, essentially, a protege," explained Muir. "Tom and Sarah met last year when Tom was in town one day and Tom said hey, I'd like to choose you."
Since graduating the Rosebud School, Robertson has become interested in the role of active play in human development as expressed and facilitated through theatre and the arts.
"This group of grads actually graduated in 2017, so coming up this year, 2018, we have another six grads and they're going to be graduating at the Rosas coming up this September," noted Muir.
