Monologue and Poetry
Instruction by Kamliah Bush
Through a series of exercises, students will unlock their creative voice to respond to the world around us. Together we will create character, find their motivation and write your own 2-minute monologue!
July 1st 9:00-10:30am
July 2nd & 3rd 10:00-11:30am
In this class we will understand the benefits of writing poetry, and explore different styles. Through reading, responding to and composing poetry, we will find our own poetic rhythm!
July 1st-3rd 12:30-2:00pm
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.

Instruction by Rob Carson
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
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.
