Broadwater Community Theater Group
July 22 12-2:00 PM and July 23 12-2:00 PM
The Broadwater Community Theater Group is proud to offer this opportunity to work with Michael Lewis in an intensive acting workshop that will allow participants to hone in on their skills of creative direction, collaboration, adaptation, and so much more. Michael has offered his time to share his unique experiences as an actor and how he transformed from the local Montana thespian, to the regular working performer that he is today.
Workshop is designed to fill both days as this is planned to be an intense course
Class one/Day one 12:00-2:00 pm.
This workshop will explore aspects of “clowning”, movement, improvisation, and other theater games. It is intended for teens and adults of any or no experience. There will be an emphasis on fun!
Class two/Day two 12:00-2:00 pm.
This workshop will be a guided exploration to playing the works of the Bard. We will explore physicality (both literal and non-literal gesture), and will also focus on vocal approaches to the text. It is intended for teens and adults of any or no experience. Never again will you fear Will!
