Text Based Character Study Workshop with Val Planche May 23!

Workshop: Text Based Character Study 

with Valerie Planche

Saturday May 23, 10:00 – 5:00

Bring your character from the page, to the stage!

SYNOPSIS:

This workshop will focus on how to more fully use a script to make stronger character choices as an actor. We will explore how to go beyond the obvious, especially digging into the layers that the writer has set out – and how to find clues to those deeper meanings. We’ll also look at our relationship to language, how active language can enhance our performances, and MORE! If you’ve ever wanted to gain more insight in breaking down a script, or are looking to expand your acting arsenal – this workshop is for you!

RUDDIGORE OPENS THIS FRIDAY!

Ruddigore or, The Witch’s Curse  April 17 – May 2

For 20 plus generations, the Baronets of Ruddigore have been ruled by a witch’s curse that requires them to commit a crime every day, or else perish in inconceivable agony.  THIS is where our tale begins… A story full of love, the supernatural, outrageous situations and songs by the original masters of the musical comedy; Gilbert and Sullivan! Expect a frightening curse, ghosts coming to life, and a sudden surprise conclusion, all told with clever songs and dances.
