|Thursday, May 18||Improv for Actors with Laura Hall||Register Here|
|Friday, May 19||Playwright-in-Person Workshop with Erin Shields||Register Here|
Improv for Actors with Laura Hall: Laura’s workshop helps you learn improv fundamentals and apply various techniques to grow into a confident actor who can make interesting choices in an instant. We’ll work on minimizing nerves and learning to be present, finding “the truth”, building strong characters, and building and working within your scripted environment (especially useful for cold reads). The best part? The class will be geared towards what you need! Specific exercises will depend on the overall experience and desires of course participants.
Playwright-in-Person Workshop with Erin Shields: Erin Shields is a playwright and actor who trained at Rose Bruford College of Speech and Drama in London, England. She is a founding member of Groundwater Productions through which she creates, develops, and produces much of her work. Her Governor General’s Literary Award winning play If We Were Birds was produced by Tarragon Theatre in 2010 and won two Dora Mavor Moore Awards. It also earned the 2008 Summerworks Festival’s Outstanding Production Award and has been translated into German as part of The German Theatre Exchange. Her other plays include Montparnasse, winner of the Alberta Theatre Projects’ Enbridge playRites Award, the Dora-nominated The Unfortunate Misadventures of Masha Galinski, and The Epic of Gilgamesh (Groundwater / Summerworks). Erin is currently developing plays for Tarragon, The Shaw Festival, Nightwood Theatre, Suitcase in Point, and Groundwater Productions. Her most recent play, The Millennial Malcontent, premiered this year.
