"I found my confidence while taking this workshop and my desire to focus more on acting."

Delve deeply into the process of acting and creating theater. Use collaborative exercises to create a sense of ensemble and the “phantom note” that develops when artists truly work together as a unit.

In this workshop students use improvisation exercises and monologues to awaken their creative voices, overcome inhibitions, build confidence, and hone their abilities as performers. You will delve into some method acting and work with sense memory to discover the unique emotional palette that makes up our individual identity as actors. You will also explore the technical aspects of theater and gain a basic understanding of lighting, blocking, and direction.

The workshop culminates with a final performance of an original work written and performed by students under the guidance of their lead teacher.
