The Self Stories Theatre process continues!

We all have stories to tell! In the winter session of Self Stories Theatre, the actor/writers have been mining and exploring their own lives and stories, writing pieces that are humorous, touching, and (mostly!) true. In this session, we will bring them to the stage!

Continuing from our work in the previous session, each actor/writer will work with instructor/director Lorene Stanwick, to further develop, workshop and rehearse their unique 10-minute solo theatre piece.

Until further notice, we will work ONLINE. That means using ZOOM to meet, discuss, share work and feedback, both with the group and individually.

Attendance at the first class is mandatory in order to test out the system and define this process. Writing prompts, activities and exercises will further feed your written work, and sharing of work will be via the ZOOM class time, or by video submission - details to come!

Be prepared to perform your show at the Spring Workman Arts Open House! If we’re not in the building yet, we’ll perform in a Virtual Open House.

NOTE: Although course participation has been confirmed with those Winter session participants who will continue, REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.
