Are you interested in acting? Whether it is a new or familiar experience, acting can be joyful and creative. The chance to work with other motivated actors is a valuable experience.

We’re offering a series of workshops with Peter and Carol Snell called  Acting: The Playing’s the Thing. a series of three, two-hour workshops promising to unveil more to each participant about communication with an audience. We will explore through individual and group exercises. Topics will include: finding a character, working with the group, and improvisation. The workshops will be self-contained but will build on each other. They also promise to be a lot of fun.

The workshops are offered on the evenings of May 8th, May 15th and May 22nd.

May 8th  Workshop 1: Finding the character

Questions to be explored: How do actors use their expressions and movements to reveal character? How do actors achieve a neutral aspect in order to add flexibility to their portrayals?

What role do the various senses (e.g. hearing, smell, touch) play for the actor? What are the uses of silence and stillness for the actor?


*We are able to offer these workshops for only $15 each with the assistance of provincial funding*

Register for May 8th
