This event is a Devised Theatrical Piece. Writings from the month long event will help create the performance on August 1st 2020. The Acting Coach will work with everyone on the various pieces and The Director will choose actors and pieces that best go together to create a cohesive piece to present.

Over the course of the Acting Classes the pieces presented will be viewed to create a cohesive piece, and the Director will cast based off of the work during the acting classes. Students will be encouraged to vote on pieces to be presented at the end to help better decide a layout.
