Improvisation/ Play Reading with Stephan Turner

Course Dates:

August 8, 15, 22, 29, 2022


1 – 3 p.m.

Improvisation/ Play Reading with Stephan Turner

The class will include a variety of theater games and warm up activities, stage movement – (learning the areas of the stage and body positions), vocal projection technique, basics of short form improv, getting into character and play reading. You do not need to have prior experience. All that’s needed
is the desire to explore your creative energies, meet people, try something new or simply have fun.

The only commitment is to arrive on time and be ready to hone your ability to commit to spontaneous, believable actions under imaginary circumstances.
It would be nice if we could have a small showing at the end of the course but that would be up to the group.
