Have you always had an idea for a play, but were never able to put the pen to the paper? Are you an actor looking for more work? Ever thought of making your own?
In today's theatrical and cinematic industry, actors are finding it increasingly difficult to work and play roles of substance. So what do you do? Make your own work!
Actors taking this 4 week course will learn the fundamentals and foundation of playwriting using language with which they are already familiar. Actors will approach playwriting from an “actor’s perspective”; just as actors investigate and diagnose a role, students will approach writing from the inside out. Ultimately, students in the class will walk away with the ability to create their own work, have a body of work to pull ideas from, and learn to practice writing, expanding their abilities and horizons. “Writing, like all art forms can be done by anyone, but it takes practice, drive, and determination.” Those who choose the six week option will have a one-day workshop of their work read on stage by professional actors, with optional feedback from invited audience, moderated by playwright Annie R.
