Artist Development Theatre Participation Workshops
Once you have learned theatre arts in one of the following: Acting, Comedy, Mime, Voice, Directing, Stage Manager, Set Designer, or Makeup Artistry, now it’s time to hone your skill by participating in one of our hands-on workshops.
Theatre is different from all other forms of theatrical presentation because it is live storytelling with the experience of being in the presence of the audience. The performer – audience relationship is at the heart of the theatre experience, the immediate, personal exchange whose chemistry and magic give theatre its special quality.
Participation workshops are based upon acceptance and availability. The monthly participation fee is $100. The nonrefundable registration fee is $50.
Actors Performance Workshop: will provide acting opportunities, character development and stage performances.
Comedy or Mime Performance Workshop: will provide opportunities for stand-up comedy or mime development and performances.
Voice Performance Workshop: will provide singing opportunities and presentation development for vocalists.
Director’s Workshop: will provide an opportunity to develop and implement a theatre production project.
Stage Manager Workshop: will provide practical and organizational support to the director, actors, designers, stage crew and technicians throughout the production process.
Make Up Artist Workshop: will interpret the make-up requirements of performers to produce both a creative and technically accurate visual representation. This may involve very basic make-up for a video presenter through to more complex period make-up or special effects for theatre. The workshop also involves creating images and characters through the medium of make-up.
Set Designer Workshop: All the scenery, furniture and props the audience sees at a production of a play make up the set design. The set designer workshop is to design these physical surroundings in which the action will take place. The overall look of the set also gives the audience information about the director's concept of the production.
