On Thursday May 19, we have “Comedy Scene Study” with Michelle Jackett-Webster. Participants will learn the elements of comedy needed when scenes in a play. We will discuss pacing, comic timing, physical comedy, patterns of three, writer’s intent and the use of contrast within comedic works. Scene partners will work on a short scene to implement these concepts. We will be approaching the work from a "Cold Reading" point of view to simulate the audition and call back settings in a community theatre environment.
On Saturday May 21, we have “Stage Combat 101” with Joshua Bainbridge. This hands-on workshop will focus on unarmed physical theater. Participants will learn stage combat essentials, including falls, slaps, punches, kicks and chokes. Safety skills are given top priority during this workshop.
