What you'll learn in this acting technique class:

You know what your one person show is. You've got an outline, the title, the poster (even if it's just in your head). Now you just want the actual script! This workshop is designed for writing, writing, writing.

Specific writing exercises will give you the key points of your show: the introduction, how to take us into your world, the forwards, the climax, the transformation, the ending...and you're gold! Not for the faint of heart - in this kickass weekend of writing, you will work hard and forge your story with love, pressure, and truth.

This class is beneficial for those who have already taken the One Person Show Workshop, but those with outside experience or a working script can also apply to join the class.

Prerequisites: 
  • One Person Show Workshop within 2 years of activity start
