Creating a One-Person Show
“Not only did I learn the fundamentals of acting, I surprised myself by actually completing my own 10-minute show, something I didn’t think I could do.”
Learn the ins and outs of creating a one-person show, including how to use personal stories, imagery, dreams, and myths as fabric for constructing original performance pieces. All students will create, stage, and perform a solo piece by the course's end. This class is recommended for playwrights, actors, and anyone interested in exploring artistic self-expression.
No class Nov 27 (Thanksgiving weekend)
