As our team continues brainstorming how we can accomplish our mission - honing our craft - we realize a need for outreach, for ourselves and for the local theatre community. As part of that, we'll be conducting a workshop on August 7, 4pm @ JM.
Our first topic will be action verbs. While this may be a review for many, it continues to be the core of what I see as a difference between a good production and a great production. When actors are merely delivering lines the show suffers. Instead, we need to continually push objectives through intentional choices, and one of the most direct "ways in" is through action verbs. Sometimes, actors become frustrated with this table work, but whenever we've taken the time to truly develop an action verb for every beat or line, a crisper, cleaner, and stronger story is told. We hope you can join us.
