IMPROV / 60-180 minutes / Ages 14 and up
Many people are intimated by the word “Improv,” thinking in order to be good at it, you have to be funny. However, that is far from the truth. In fact, if you allow yourself to simply “be yourself” and listen to what is being said to you and react naturally, oftentimes that is where the humor springs forth. I have many wonderful “ice breaker games” to start us off, as well as many fun scenarios to launch us into a risk –free improv workshop that anyone can play. This workshop can assist in freeing up actors to react in the moment as well as developing good listening skills. It is flexible for mixed groups, and can be as long as an hour to three hours. If there is a specific need you wish to address, just let me know and I will custom design it to fit your needs.
SHAKESPEARE WORKSHOP, A PLAY ON WORDS - Storyacting / 60 min / Ages 14 and up
Shakespeare invented many of the original words we still use in today’s English language. He created over 1,700 words by changing many existing nouns into verbs, verbs into adjectives, and by adding prefixes and suffixes to them, not to mention inventing brand new words in general. He truly was a “word-smith” to be sure!
A PLAY ON WORDS is a 60 minute workshop where we use many Shakespearian words in small group skits and have fun acting them out for one another. You don’t need to have any knowledge of theatre or even of Shakespeare to participate in this workshop. It is a great way to celebrate Shakespeare and all of his wonderful contributions to our world.
