Fall 2021 & Spring 2022 Programs
High School "Out of the Box" Session 2 — Six weeks for $100!
A creative workshop to raise skills, authenticity and connection for actors, playwrights, techies, singers, musicians and aspiring directors of all kinds. This course draws from the following topics:
Songwriting & Underscores
Fluid characterization & actors transformation
Creative tech design: costume, makeup, set, lighting & sound
Join us in journeying through the preconceptions, misconceptions, labels, categories, and structures that limit creativity in order to boldly express and authentically connect.
The class will meet weekly on Thursdays, 10/7-11/11, 5:45–7:15pm at The Venue Theatre.
Every month we create opportunities to share the work you are creating with others, to mentor younger actors, or invite friends to share work as well.
Taught by composer, musician, performer and instructor EP Archer.
