Theater Workshop for High School Students – Crafting the Character Workshop
Sometimes, tackling a character is hard. Hours of writing backstory doesn’t always help get inside your character’s head. But the three basics of crafting your character are just in your reach. For two hours over four Sundays, this masterclass will help you discover the Physical, Emotional, and Metaphysical layers to your character, giving you useful tools and exercises for your “Actor’s tool belt”. Learn a safe, fun, and memorable way to connect to your character and allow both yourself and them to grow.
