Theatre Ontario is thrilled to be introducing our new Summer Theatre Intensive, partnering with Off the Wall, Stratford Artist Alliance. Through this exciting new collaboration we will join Off The Wall in their home at Factory 163 in the heart of Stratford, Ontario.
This year we will be offering intensives over a two-week period as listed below.
WEEK ONE (Sunday August 6 – Friday August 11th):
- Sharpening your Actor’s Tool Kit with Tom Diamond
- Directing for Beginners (or how do I make this play happen?) with Thom Currie
- Freeing the Body & Imagination - An Introduction to Mask in Performance with Peggy Coffey
WEEK TWO (Sunday August 13 – Friday August 18th):
- Who the Heck Are YOU?! Creating “Character” with Liza Balkan
- Building your own Directing Process with Philip Akin
- How to Tell An “Important” Story with Donna-Michelle St. Bernard
This year we are embracing a brand new, choose-your-own-adventure approach to the Summer Theatre Intensive; pick your week, pick your course, pick your digs!
By covering each participant’s course fees, course materials, lunch and dinner only, we hope to allow more flexibility for our guests to choose their own accommodations.
Participants will enjoy catered lunches and dinners as well as other planned theatrical events throughout the week’s evenings in the hometown of North America’s largest Shakespeare Festival.
We hope to see you there!
