We offer two workshops this year: Speak the Speech and Guest Director.  Please refer to the Information Packet for cost and scheduling.  Check out Early Bird Registration to get one FREE Workshop!

Speak the Speech

This workshop is best suited early in your process, once the material has been selected and casting has been confirmed. Basic poetics and performance skills that will help students deepen their understanding of the text, character, scene, and stagecraft will be introduced, demonstrated, and practiced.

Guest Director

This workshop is best suited mid-way or towards the end of your process for “finishing touches.” A Teaching Artist will watch some or all of the prepared material and offer suggestions on what is succeeding, and how to build upon and improve the work.
