Scene Writing

Scene Writing

Scene Writing will give an overview of the basics of the dramatist's toolkit, including character, dialogue, action and setting, and then give students the opportunity to experiment with using these tools to give voice to world events as well as personal introspection, and explore how it's all connected. Students will be asked to write a 2-4 page script on their own time to be workshopped in constructive, positive class sessions. Fun and a willingness to go where the imagination leads are a must.

Adapting Shakespeare

Instruction by Rob Carson

Adapting Shakespeare
What makes Shakespeare so great? In these sessions, we'll begin by doing some close reading of passages from Shakespeare, exploring the tools that he employs in crafting a speech for an actor. Then, we'll put what we've learned about his techniques into practice, adapting text from Shakespeare to write new dramatic monologues of our own.

Technical Aspects of Virtual Reality

Instruction by Kate Duprey

Technical Aspects

As theater is switching to a more virtual platform (for now) we, as technicians, need to adapt as well. Come learn the basics of live streaming an entire production from the comfort of your home. Find out how to make people, who are miles apart, look like they're in the same room. And watch how it all comes together in the performance we create for our audience.
