It’s not too late to get in your registration for the Theatre Ontario 2011 Summer Theatre Intensive in Waterloo. While Terry Tweed’s “When I Am On Stage…Who Am I?” is sold out, we still have spaces remaining in three courses.
Now What Do I Do?: Introduction To Directing, with Brenda Bazinet will cover all the basics, from selecting a suitable play, through the audition process, blocking, pacing, interpretation, handling pressures, time-management as the big night approaches, - right up to opening night.
Andrew Tidmarsh’s Shakespeare Conservatory explores the theory that if you can handle the complexities of Shakespeare’s verse, you can do anything. While the courses uses Shakespeare’s texts as a central focus, this is also a course about acting, committing to the imaginative truth, building relationships, and embodying character.
The Directors Symposium offers experienced community theatre directors the rare chance to meet and discuss the art of directing with five different professional directors. Each day during the week, a different well-known and respected professional director will meet with the class to discuss the art of directing and delve into a script chosen by the guest director. Our five guest directors for 2011 are: Dean Gabourie (Stratford Shakespeare Festival), Eda Holmes (Shaw Festival), Christopher Newton (Shaw Festival), Yvette Nolan (Native Earth Performing Arts), and Richard Rose (Tarragon Theatre).
